Not nice. Have another Turkish coffee on me ;-)
Why am I supposed to be nice?
I posted a link in the arts and entertainment forum, making an explanation about a movie based on a real story about a series of experiments. Pointed that it is an important movie to watch. He posted the synopsis of the movie with a commercial link.
-He is unable to pick the name of the protagonist, type it in the google bar and check if he is a real character or not, but instead he says there were no other links and this looks more like a publicity stunt about a few people acting immoral that we don't need go to 1961 even though I pointed out clearly that it was repeated in 2008 with very similar results in the OP.
-The link about the experiment is provided to him. It's a short, simple text in his mother language explaining the experiment and showing that it is not about a few people and that it was repeated a few times. He keeps saying the same things.
-He starts talking about his co-worker collapsing and how people reacted and how people are acting according to their instincts...etc which is exactly the opposite of the reaction of the subjects in the obedience experiment.
-He doesn't even understand that it is the concept of morality which is referred as a general religious construct, but conscience is here used as something more personal, because it is about inflicting pain first hand and hearing the reaction and that the morality discussed in this movie's context was the ethics of the scientist who conducted the experiments.
-He keeps writing about how most people and he himself would react which he sounds so fucking sure about it. Who the fuck cares if he is moral or not. Those people who pushed the button up to 450 volts are as moral as him. They are as moral as everyone. That's the whole fucking point.
-It's clearly expressed that experts on this field miserably failed with their professional assumptions which is by the way exactly what he says, he keeps starting-ending with it.
-Then he asks me if I am saying that 'in not conforming the the ideas this experiment put across in its results, in looking at it and considering the workings of it, instead just following exactly what they say it is'. The experiment he has no idea by the way, because he is unable to offer anything about the experiment itself, I am guessing he means being sceptical about the results, although it is doubtful at this point if he gets why an experiment like this actually counts on what grounds, then jumps to primate behaviour and declare that we do not need these experiments to see we are flawed. We don't need experiments, guys! Wohoooooo. They are canceled.
It would be a fantasy to expect him to make connections and the consequences of these results in real life. Let's say on military personnel -active or not- in medicine or any various line of work that is directly related to life and death, absolute authority, or the fucking morality everyone has so much apparently, because he cannot even get what is the point the experiment, but he is a very moral person please be sure about that.
Basically, he cannot hit anywhere close to the point about the subject and keeps talking out off is ass and making claims about something he refuses to be informed and demanding an explanation from me.
Yeah, demonstration of willful stupidity. It's not name calling. He is fucking stupid.
