Dilbert Blog: Tucker Carlson Induces Cognitive Dissonance in Bill Nye the Science Guy over Climate Change submitted by ChromeWeasel to science

mbenbernard 16 points 2 points (+18|-16) ago

People who s*it on Bill Nye simply don't understand how science works.

It's fascinating to see how people automatically assume that because Bill Nye can't answer a specific question, he's completely clueless on the entire topic of climate change; and because of that, it auto-magically makes their own knowledge and arguments stronger, without them having to bring any scientific proof to support what they're saying.

Any self respected scientist knows that the more he learns, the more he discovers how little he knows. The "other camp" doesn't see things that way obviously, and it assumes that it knows everything. This shows ignorance and a complete lack of humility.

Become a Full-Stack Developer Github Guide submitted by Bolbi to programming

mbenbernard 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

I agree with you; it's unreasonable to expect a developer to be an expert in all tools and technologies (back-end and front-end).

In my opinion, a good developer is somebody who's versatile enough, and who can learn on the spot, whenever a new technology is required.

curl is C | daniel.haxx.se submitted by effusive_ermine to programming

mbenbernard 0 points 2 points (+2|-0) ago

I think that most arguments have been discussed on Reddit and Hacker News already. But mine is a bit different.

Many people assume that it's creator's job and responsibility to rewrite curl in another language, and in his spare time. I just don't agree with this. If people want a "better", "safer" or "more stable" curl, then they're free to rewrite it in their favorite language.

Dilbert Blog: Tucker Carlson Induces Cognitive Dissonance in Bill Nye the Science Guy over Climate Change submitted by ChromeWeasel to science

So you're saying that my comment is factually incorrect. And you go as far as saying that Nye is anti-science. Please provide your sources (and actual proofs) when you claim such things.

And how can denying the potential effect of humans on the climate be pro-science? It's not because we can't perfectly measure its effects that no science or bad science is involved. It's just that our models are imperfect, just like we are. What would you expect from science, exactly?

Understanding Git Filter-Branch and the Git Storage Model submitted by ChillyHellion to programming

I had only a vague idea of how Git commits are stored. Now I know. Thanks for sharing!

How good is your knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript? And what about programming is general?

This is just a feeling of mine, but if you're asking what "CSS program" you should use, perhaps you're missing the basics.

  1. Grab a good text editor and a browser (Notepad++ and Chrome will do the job).
  2. Read a few books about those topics and complete the exercises. The "Head First" collection from O'Reilly is quite good for beginners.
  3. Create your first website or blog. Customize its look using HTML and CSS. Perfect it.
  4. Then write your first web app - to do that, you'll probably need to learn a new language for the backend (Node.js, Python, etc.).

N.B.: You don't need a separate program to "style" HTML markup. You just need to edit a CSS stylesheet with a text editor and view the results in a browser. After going through the bullets above, you should be able to do it.
