I hate ignorant people
    #3633931 - 01/16/05 03:16 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

So I'm chatting on irc with some people I go to school with, we have a room that we usually chat in everyday. Anyway we're having a discussion on how weed doesn't cause cancer or at least there haven't been any reported cases of weed causing cancer. One kid says to me "weed does cause cancer it's a fact" I'm like no it doesn't so I linked to him a site that says there have been no reported cases of weed causing cancer. So get this hahaha the kid says "Reading isn't everything, just because you read something somewhere doesn't mean it's true" wtf that is a proven fact that there hasn't been any reported cases of weed causing cancer. I really can't deal with these type of people. Some people think that they are always right no matter what even if you provide evidence to back up what you are saying. It's not just this issue either, this kid always thinks he is right no matter what, he wont even discuss it he just says I am right you are wrong, end of story. Have any of you ever run across people like this? If so how do you deal with these types of people?

There is no factual evidence linking cigarette smoking to causing cancer either since all lab tests have been conducted on animals.

Does that mean cigarettes are healthy too?

No, that doesn't mean they are healthy but that wasn't what the discussion was about. There was a simple little fact that was obviously true but this kid wouldn't admit he was wrong.

I wouldn't even waste time argueing with anyone online.

Agree to disagree. :shrug:

Ignorant people frustrate me, so I'd rather not deal with them.
I deal with ignorant people all day at work.

Exactly what I was trying to hint. One who argues that marijuana smoking isn't linked to cancer is using the same argument the tobacco industry uses to justify their sale of the product.

But how can you dispute the fact that there have been no reported cases of weed causing cancer? To me that can't be disputed it's just simply true but this kid says it isn't true.

Yes, but I know this kid in real life so I have to deal with him pretty much everyday because I go to school with him.

There have been no reported cases of cigarettes causing cancer either. Just a strong correlation, same to be found with marijuana. It cannot be "proved" until rigorous lab study, experiments, and replication which has not and will not occur due to ethical violations.

You are right there but there have been no reported cases that weed causes cancer, that is a fact that cannot be disputed. This kid says that is wrong in otherwords he says that there have been reported cases of weed causing cancer and that is just not true.

exactly. it can be shown that the carcinogens from cigarettes and marijuana will increase your chances for cancer, but you can't acutally prove that's what caused it. they are undoubtedly not healthy activities, but this kid sounds like he just wants to argue for it's own sake. he doesn't want to learn anything.

That's the thing, I did ask him and he doesn't have a source he just says he is right every time. It's like he can't be wrong, he knows everything.

That's what makes me mad, I tell him that all the time. He says he doesn't have to back up his claims because he knows he is right.

We had another discussion one time about how mushrooms are legal in amsterdam (if they aren't dried) and he said I was wrong. So I showed him that he was wrong by providing a link to erowid and he still said that he was right because he "knows that mushrooms aren't legal in amsterdam".
