Well there's no arguing with that logic!! Or lack thereof.

You don't prefer to believe what you see with your own eyes?

No, they shouldn't. I believe what I see with my own eyes. Not some crap that "scholars" put together. Most scholars have never had a job in the real world.

most scholars paid their way through college with jobs in the real world and most scholars teach in community colleges or universities, both of which are jobs in the real world. what an incredibly ridiculous argument to make.

What you see with your own eyes is figuratively nothing more than your opinion of events. In a literal sense, what you see with your own eyes is nothing more than your brains interpretation of reality, and here's a nifty hint - your eyes lie to you all the time.

No they did not. Come on, Philly. You're much to smart to make a statement like that.

You really don't see the inherent flaw and imbedded hubris in processing information on the grounds that "if I ain't seen it myself it's a buncha mularky?"

No I don't. It's how I pulled myself away from organized religion.

but I guess since you don't personally know any scholars that have worked jobs and now teach college, any say-so otherwise is easily dismissible with your philosophy. must be nice

You're putting words in my mouth. I trust what I see with my own eyes MORE than what your scholars tell you. Doesn't mean I totally dismiss what they say.

You do the same thing. If you read up on it, most people who have studied the subject will tell you that giving money to bums is the last thing you should do. But you do it anyway. Why?

I love how the stats are revered when they support one way of looking at things and vilified when they go against it. Having worked with a lot of stats in academia, there's a ton of things that go into getting a desired result if one wishes to do so. Academia is hardly above reproach when it comes to being objective with what they report.
