    We have to fact check just about anything we read or hear, whatever the source. And don't check it with websites that have a similar bias.
    What always gets me about "RationalWiki", aside from its ironic status as the left's go-to questionable source to impeach everyone else's questionable sources, is that the articles don't even bother with the pretense of objectivity, thoroughness, supporting evidence, or any of the things one would expect from rational analyses. They read like the profanity-laced screeds of angry YouTube commenters. Nebulous, hyperbolic criticisms backed up by precisely nothing.

    Yet they're cited as though we're supposed to value nebulous, hyperbolic criticisms backed up by precisely nothing. And not only this, we're supposed to value these criticisms of other websites so much that we summarily reject anything the websites say as untrue--unworthy even of consideration.

    In the words of a famous doctor: "How about 'no', you crazy Dutch bastard."

    Yeesh. Lefties, eh?

    Yes. They cite RationalWiki as though anything it says must be true. Or if it's a medical controversy, they cite ScienceBasedMedicine. The organized "skeptics" ALWAYS take the side of Big Drug.

    That's the name of their website. That doesn't mean their opinions are more scientific or more correct.

    Well that is a simple-minded statement.

    I have yet to see you use logic in any of your arguments.
