Quote of the day

"Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it." -Andre Gide

Tell me bloggers, who do you trust more; the politician, the activist or the scientist?

  1. They all have an agenda and usually a selfish one. Or maybe I have trust issues...

  5. I'd trust an honest politician, activist, or scientist, but I've never met an honest politician.

  6. I'd have to say neither, most of them have their own agenda and will lie to have things their way, although i will have to say unless the scientist is somehow paid by the government then they might be the most trustworthy because they're chill and just care about the science ant the pursuit of truth and knowledge. so it i HAD to choose, i'd say the scientist.

  8. The scientist! The other is too full of passion to be reasonable, and the other is full of two faced fail...

  9. your quote almost relates to what I was going to say. They each have their own path (their truth) that they will stick to. Each person's path has pro's and cons. But if someone stuck a gun to my head an asked which one I would have to say the scientist only on things that have evidence or proof though.

  10. None of them. They're all a bunch of lying scoundrels, I say!

  11. All three have their agenda's...so their own truth, each needs to be trusted/doubted on their merits

  12. Politicians deal in lies. Activists deal in emotions. Scientists deal in observable, verifiable facts. Scientists.

  13. hard to say, out of those three - the scientist

  14. Hard to say. Politicians are straight liars, activists don't think, they just do, and scientists are funded by politics. I would probably go with the scientists, even though some are undoubtedly corrupt.

  15. I trust the scientist because they're the only of the three not trying to put a spin on the information they find.

  16. What if all are the same person...they aren't mutually exclusive. If it came to it I have to make a choice between the activist and the scientist.

  17. The scientist's goal is to find facts from nature, so I trust him.
