Default Re: Skeptics are irrelevent

That was not my intent. What I meant is when talking about science it's possible to credibly say "I am right and you are wrong". The same is not true when talking about things such as the desirability of the welfare state. It's preferences. It's values. Both sides wish to appear to be objectively right, so they argue about the science in the hopes of if they can win that argument they will win the values argument on just inertia from winning the previous argument.
