            You will burn in hell for blasphemy

            Why submit to something that seeks to make us less human?

            We are mere swine before Jesus. Stop trying to be like God. Submit. Science must be abolished. Technology must be destroyed.

            Why would I want to be anything like a hypocritical tyrant who sees it fit to drown the world for indulging in the free will and sin he himself gave us?

      You just use logic like Doctor Spock, gather facts, analyze them, try to avoid leaping to conclusions, avoid confirmation bias, avoid inserting your own agenda no matter how deeply you feel about it.

      Pseudoscience is a problem in the humanities, but economics, criminology, statistics, and even psychology do not necessarily need to be pseudoscientific.

    Free will is hard. It requires conscious thought, which is metabolically expensive. The human body is quick to take "shortcuts", and being social is a great shortcut for thinking -- if you see a guy doing something that works, you can just copy what he does. You get his results without having to do the (metabolically-expensive) thoughtwork.

    So we're all very similar.

    it's the same reason why we can have the same language, why we all "know" that the word "red" indicates things colored like blood or a ripe tomato -- its convenient.

    Because "free" doesn't mean "upredictable" in that term.
