  1. Again, you're drawing broad conclusions from a statement that doesn't actually back up what you're trying to suggest. Nowhere in that statement do they make any claims about the genetic resistances of Māori and Pacific Islanders; they simply state that as a population group they are more susceptible to the impacts of pandemics. I can see why you're conflating the two, but as @Jamiem (and me bringing up what he said again) have pointed out is that as a population group they face a number of cultural and societal challenges that can also lead to an increased susceptibility to the impacts of a pandemic. And I don't think anything in Tele's post suggests he is denying the existence of evolution.
  2. As was explained to you earlier by @Jamiem: The rest of your other post is a whole other can of worms but the thing that jumps to my mind is that a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing. You've drawn a lot of broad conclusions within a field that I think it's fair to say you aren't an expert in. Sometimes it's better to take a step back and realise you don't have all the answers.
  3. Honestly man, I straight up just don't trust your takes on scientific stuff after you linked that David Esker sauropod theory back in 2018.
  4. Endurance by Alfred Lansing is a) crazy as shit and b) one of the best books I've ever read. Wow.
  5. Can't disagree with most of your points here. I give our government full credit for their handling of the situation so far but we are lucky that we already have some built-in defenses simply because we're a small country on the other side of the planet to most places. Helps that we also have a very low population density.
  6. I haven't really been watching anything but I have read more books this month than I did in the entirety of last year.
  7. It's easy to say "it's just identity politics" when you're not on the receiving end of the xenophobia.
