How would you classify Mythbusters' behaviour? Where would such wrong-doing come on the scale of wrong-doing? Would it cross the line - wherever you place said line - into sin?Quote
I just downloaded a free facts app the other day, and read rhat "Plato made up the story about Atlantis." This is an example of the kind of lie I was getting at earlier, and in this case the lying source was myth busters.
The truth, which in nonnegotiable, is that we don't know if Plato was sincere or not.
So, mythbusters starts off with a lie and goes from there. This kind of bullshit is so pervasive, and it does skew public perception. It's a very small step from applying the same deceit to character assassination or the negative targetting of groups, and from there to war.
