We take natural phenomena like eclipses, volcano eruptions, and earthquakes for granted. We understand them and why they occur. But hundreds of years ago, people wouldn't have had any idea what was going on. They would have thought the gods were destroying the Earth. Goes to show that the more we discover and learn, the less we attribute to mysticism. The age of religion is coming to an end, amirite?

Apples and oranges; there's an explanation of "how" (natural science) and an explanation of "why" (philosophy, religion). You're mistreating both as if they are fundamentally incompatible. They aren't. So long as humans are sapient, the question of "why" will always remain, and so will philosophy at best and religion at worst.

Science can't exist without philosophy and philosophy can't exist without science and religion. The three are constructs of mere sentience and sapience. Epistemologically speaking: there is no trichotomy; fake divisions are fabricated and propagated by Materialists and Idealists in an egotistical effort to oversimplify reality for the sake of meaningless debate.

Any otherwise literate logophile can easily deduce the meaning of "maniaphobe" without looking it up ("mania" means insane and "phobia" means fear. Therefore, maniaphobia obviously means fear of insanity), amirite?

Uh, you'd have to know how smart I am in order to determine how smart I'm pretending to be, genius.

I think you're hiding an infantile inferiority complex that has been triggered by your own logophobic delusions about intelligence. The fact that you're intimidated by this post is transparent. The fact that you reference some logophobic whine from anti-intellectualism to rationalise away your illiteracy is even more transparent. Funny part is, you probably don't even think it's that obvious.

I think you've deluded yourself into believing that I'm pretending to be smart to relieve yourself of dissonance caused by the fact that a stranger on the Internet has demonstrated a level of literacy that you feel uncomfortable with. I think you're threatened by it.

So you, like most illiterate tossers, accuse me of faking verbal-linguistic intelligence - as if doing so will somehow make you any less of an idiot. Fast fact: It doesn't. But that won't stop you, will it? Because it's so cool to be a fatuous wanker who wouldn't know what it means to be smart if someone bludgeoned him over the head with a copy of Lynn Gilman's "Human Intelligence".

Girls: you hate when your vagina violently discharges a litter of kittens even though you aren't a cat violent. amirite?
@1694857

At least s/he has found a way to stuff the words "vagina", "kittens", and "violence" in the same sentence. That takes commitment.

Sometimes the holocaust conditions seem ideal. All you had to do was work for a few hours in exchange for free clothes, shelter, and feeding schedules designed to help you lose weight, amirite?
Writers should do more things like Wicked, were you get to here the other side of the story, amirite?

I'm want to write a script for a film set before the mythical flood.

The story will be told from the perspective of pretty much everyone but Noah's family, spotlighting a few interesting characters along the way as the world plots a course for its own destruction. Much of the background will come from the Book of Enoch, which describes the pre-flood world as one that was pretty similar to our own- but with access to non-terrestrial super-natural beings that essentially screwed with the evolutionary development of humanity.

The end of the epic will be something like The Day After Tomorrow/2012/Titanic: the audience will see characters that they love struggle against the element(s) before... well... losing everything they ever knew in a sea of chaos and divine contempt.

A bag of your favorite chips brightens up your day more if you were depressed than a depression pill would, amirite?
@Aimz I'd rather have an anti-depressant over a depression pill.

I tried a depression pill once...

Barely got away with my life.

I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

If a young child asks where a baby or a baby animal came from, you have no idea how you're going to explain it to them, amirite?
@Aimz I tell them the truth. Then get chased off by their parents.

Haha. It's happened to me before, except I was chased off for telling some kid in a neighbourhood park that Santa Claus doesn't exist. His father practically chased me out of the park: "Go home and ruin someone else's Christmas!"

Fond memory, that.

You hate when girls ovary act about something, amirite?

ISWYDT

You pronounce "writing" and "riding" identically. amirite?

I do it sometimes. Like if I'm drowsy or my mouth gets dry. But it's nothing a lingual frenotomy can't fix.

I don't need your running commentary. If you don't have anything to say on the topic of my first comment ITT, then don't waste my time.

Sun-kissed skin refers to moderately tanned skin. We should use similar terms for every shade of tan... like sun-virgin for the pale stay-inside-all-day people, sun-fucked for overly tanned people, and sun-whore for orange Snooki clones, amirite?

This is POTD material.

Only 55% of Americans know that the sun is a star. You hope to God that the rest were answering the poll sarcastically, amirite?

Sauce pls.

I looked it up and found zip.

55% of Americans will agree with a bogus statistic if it supports a confirmation bias

The best response to "fuck you!" is to say "Don't threaten me with a good time" with a suggestive look on your face, amirite?

Not the "best" response, but definitely high on the totem pole of sardonic comebacks.

Everyone assumes fat people eat twinkies. amirite?

Parallel claim: Everyone assumes black people eat chicken.

You would rather sit in comfortable silence with somebody than fill that silence with mindless small talk, amirite?

If "comfortable silence" describes the rare occasion when nonverbal communication is interpreted so well that there's no need to talk, then I agree.
