Parallel Graphs Show Global Warming?

So, Doctor KnowItAll, measurements show atmospheric carbon dioxide levels persistently increasing over the last 200 years, and global temperatures also increasing persistently, at about the same rate. These trends parallel the increasing industrialization of the world economies. Is this coincidence?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Well then, could this industrialization, and the resulting CO2 levels, be causing the rise in temperature?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

And might the excess CO2 be making its way into the oceans, where it’s converted to carbonic acid, causing great coral beds to be bleached and krill to die in hordes, further resulting in the extinctions of fish and whales?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

So, with temperatures rising, pollution increasing, and the oceans thrown off a healthy balance, is the earth trending toward decreased liveability?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

And are we taking with us the billions of non-human creatures and plants we share this planet with?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

When will you know, Doctor KnowItAll?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Is Voter ID Working?

So, Doctor KnowItAll, are Scott Walker and the DOJ right when they say the big turnout at the polls proves that Voter ID is working?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Is it possible for them to say that, when the law was implemented with absolutely no provision for verifying that it is working as intended?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

I hear that a number of citizens were actually denied the vote because of “improper ID”, even though they were properly registered to vote. Is this “collateral damage” justified when so many fraudulent votes were prevented?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Were any fraudulent votes prevented?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Were there any fraudulent votes in prior elections to justify the loss of votes this time by valid citizens?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.
Comments

Daniel Itld Don’t you have anything else to say, Doctor KnowItAll?

Doctor KnowItAll Voter ID is one of the biggest scams politicians have ever pulled on the American people. The real fraud is this type of legislation and the hucksters who present it as good for the people. Once again, politicians who know nothing put stumbling blocks in the way of people they despise. These are citizens you’re mucking around with! You want to drug-test food stamp recipients? YOU should be tested because of the drug-fueled mania you have for disenfranchising citizens.

Daniel Itld Wow… Doctor KnowItAll has spoken! Listen up, folks.

Should We Dump the Political Parties?

So, Doctor KnowItAll, like it or not, plenty of people have voted for Trump. So when the Republican Party declares it will do everything it can to prevent him from being the nominee, are they are thwarting the will of the people?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

And when they do it by promoting Cruz – almost universally hated in his party, does this show how bankrupt the party has become?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

And then there’s the pig-headed decision to not even consider filling a vacant Supreme Court seat for over a year, for purely political reasons. Surely this shows how bankrupt the party has become?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and plenty of other prominent Americans have warned about letting political party power get out of hand. Has that time come?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Is it well past time to dump the parties?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

What do you know, Doctor KnowItAll

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Would Cruz Supporters Turn to Kasich?

So, Doctor KnowItAll, if Ted cruz were to commit suicide, would his supporters move to support John Kasich?

Doctor KNowItAll: I don’t know.

And would this tip the balance away from Donald Trump?

Doctor KNowItAll: I don’t know.

The Human Body

So, Doctor KnowItAll, there are parts of our bodies we can’t see without the help of a tool (mirror, camera, microscope, etc):

  • Your own face.
  • Your ass.
  • Your back.
  • The backs of your thighs.
  • All internal organs.
  • The trillions of bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms that populate the human body.

Are there other parts of our own bodies we can’t see without help?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Intelligent Design

So, Doctor KnowItAll, if an “Intelligent Designer” created us, why would he invent the useless appendix?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Why would he not give us a natural personal way to scratch our own backs?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

Why would he invent the tasty pig, then tell people to not eat it?
Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.
Why would he join the food and air tubes at the top of the throat, enabling choking deaths?
Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

When Humans Started to Eat Meat

So, Doctor KnowItAll, is it true that God created humans as vegetarians, until Noah landed his ark on the mountaintop and God said now he could eat meat?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.

And is that because God’s flood had destroyed all the vegetation but there were plenty of animals on board the ark?

Doctor KnowItAll: I don’t know.
