A lot of people I have tried to debate over internet, they always say that Earth has this natural cycle of heating up and cooling down. They say it was much hotter during the time of the dinosaur was much higher. what solid proof can we give them to make them understand this pandemic?

Very interesting about having a Black Hole in the middle of each Galaxy. This makes me wonder, why don't Galaxies get sucked into their Black Holes?

The far right disbelieves scientific fact? No shit: it’s because they’re real freakin stupid. They should not be allowed to participate any longer. The affirmative action afforded the conservatives in America to prop a dead ethos must end. For the sake of the world.

I hate how hypocritical leftist scientists are when it comes to bs woke shit like gender. They all know the science says 2 genders and little to no deviation in the majority population but the bow to the sjw pussies. I have much less respect for any scientists who does this.

I'm just curious because I've not heard a question like this before. If it takes (at the speed of light) 2.5 million light years to reach our nearest neighboring star, we're worried about terraforming(sp) nearby planets all while our sun will engulf the earth and neaby planets long before we can achieve faster than light space travel? And this all assuming no Civilization has surpassed a few thousand years without being wiped out....

Cheating is using the manipulation of set rules/standards to gain an unfair advantage. If it a case where "anything goes" it is sheer ingenuity.
