I think that's a human thing, we have a negativity bias that makes us focus on the scary things

How are you any different from the crazies who hold signs saying repent, the end is near? Whether you use science or religion as the base you are both still wrong. The world is not going to end anytime soon, as in millions of years soon.

Chill the fuck out.

Um... I think we were making the same point?

I was saying Americans only pay attention to science in order to carry out the self flagellation and chicken little dance about the world ending...

So who needs to chill the fuck out?

Sadly without an /s there is no way to tell you were joking because too many people love to proclaim the end is near based on science. But nice try at a save!

The context of "literally everyone we meet" should be enough to tell the tone. That phrasing is deliberate and conveys exhaustion.

If I was pro-chicken littleing, I wouldn't phrase the comment using "literally" or the third person plural "we"

I will admit I was wrong giving the cues present in the way your statement was worded. I was quick to strike against an idea seen too often on this forum as sincere belief. My bad.

A lot of those surveyed are Q-tards and MAGA-morons thinking their InstaFace feed is science.
