|Sheep and Goats|
People are separating themselves neatly into Sheep and Goats. It is really amazing to behold. If you know what a person thinks about x, odds are you also know what he thinks about y, and z. The point is, people tend to be right-thinkers or wrong-thinkers. (If you're thinking, "that's judgmental," thank you for playing. The Bear already knows all he needs to know about you.) The deficiencies that cause a person to be pro-abortion, for example, will also cause him to be pro-gay marriage and believe in climate change.
There is no reason the Bear can see why this should be, but he has found it to be so.
Before we see how useful this phenomenon really is, a caution. The more of somebody's opinions you know, the more accurately you can predict what she thinks about any controversy. Conversely, if you only know one opinion, you might be misled. Anybody can be wrong once in awhile.
This is how it works on individuals. Bears use this to quickly determine whom to eat. But it gets better when you apply it to populations.
We can't be experts in every crackpot science scam or criminal endeavor. But we don't need to be. Here we can safely rely upon the Goats to show us the way. It will be the opposite direction of whichever way they're pointing. In this way God makes use of even the Goats.
The Bear is not a scientist, but he doesn't need to be one to know that the climate change crisis is made up. Socialism, UN-ism, gun control, pro-abortion, gay marriage, anti-fracking, militant Darwinism, open borders. What do these have to do with climate change? Absolutely nothing. Yet, over a population, there does seem to be a correlation.
If a group of people are wrong in the same way on several issues, they are likely to be wrong in the same way on other issues. Simple, no?
Some Sheep can behave like Goats once in awhile. Nobody's perfect.
But it still doesn't make them right, does it?
