They’re mostly tin foil hat wearing people who believe “critical thinking” is the same as being contrarian. Log in to Reply Rogan appeals to conspiracy minded individuals and validates them. It’s just a confirmation bias circle jerk. Log in to Reply Who are you going to trust: doctors and researchers who’ve spent all their lives studying these issues, or a man who first hosted the Ultimate Fighter and Fear Factor? Come on now, one of these is clearly more qualified than the other. Log in to Reply This is going to start some shit, that part I know for sure. Log in to Reply Because the CDC, a government instrument, tells us what is fact and what is fiction and then tells us that they never said what was what. Log in to Reply Because I’d rather have a bro who is as smart as me tell me what to think than some group of nerds who just study all the time. Log in to Reply So, we’re all going to on a flight. Guess what, I read that most pilots were in the USAF, a government agency who has lied to all multiple times. And, my brother’s friend said there was a site I could go to to learn how to do it. So, I read about it online and did all my research. Who wants to fly with me? *** Edit: As silly as it sounds, it’s EXACTLY the same argument…just saying Log in to Reply Because the CDC thinks men can get pregnant. Log in to Reply The CDC has lied to me many times. It’s not so much that I trust Rogan over the CDC, it’s just that I don’t trust the CDC at all (and no sane rational person does) Log in to Reply Because Joe Rogan has no reason to lie to us Edit: calm down people it’s not that serious, I’ve listened to maybe 2 Rogan podcasts total. And I did follow CDC recommendations in the beginning, until they said masks were not needed if vaccinated then reversed on that and recommended masks+vaccine+booster. I got the vaccine so I didn’t have to wear a mask everywhere. They will never take the risk of saying masks aren’t needed anymore Log in to Reply Because it’s what GodhEmperor Donnie told them he’d do. Even though we know he didn’t. Log in to Reply I’m vaccinated, but what’s the point? You can still catch covid and you can still spread it. There is no immunity with the vaccine. You just decrease your chance of dying. Log in to Reply I’m vaccinated, but I agree with Rogan that there’s some fuckery going on with the CDC. Okay, that’s not even true, I Agree with actual doctors that Rogan has interviewed like Peter Corry that something is not right. Rogan himself is just a good interviewer who happens to be interested in a lot of things and has enough fame to get people to talk to him. If he says something scientific, he probably learned it from an earlier episode of his podcast, so go back and listen to that to see if you agree. Log in to Reply I haven’t followed the “controversy”, but if you mean the “horse medicine” thing, there is a human dosage and doctors have been prescribing it for quite some time. Log in to Reply The CDC is a political organization funded in large part by pharmaceutical interests. Even at their best, the “science” they rely so heavily upon is based on erroneous assumptions at a foundational level, and in reality is tainted by conflicting interest at every possible stage. Further, “public health” is ONLY looking at the population level. They see people as groups—as numbers—not as individuals. What may be terrible for an individual, may be good for the “group.” The CDC has NO mechanism to support the individual or to discriminate the individual from the group. I would trust my cat to give better advice than the CDC. Log in to Reply Because they did there own research and ignored everyone and everything that didn’t already confirm their own beliefs. Log in to Reply Parasocial relationships? Log in to Reply Very sad to see him fall so far, i liked his stuff a while ago but the conspiracy theorist in him really lead him astray. Log in to Reply Because my self-worth is tied up with my self-image. Log in to Reply Sadly, they likely listen more to Joe Rogan about a lot of things in their life, than the experts around them. I wonder if maybe Joe Rogan might be more trusted by them because he’s closer to them than actual family. I knew someone who had to hear Limbaugh every day or he got upset and angry. It was almost like a daily meditation (yeah, odd, I know). Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
