Yeah, how dare I not take something on blind faith without proof? I'm deceiving myself!Jachwe said:It has been proven. It is not a lie. You are deceiving yourself if you keep thinking people do not get aggressive while playing violent videogames.
That is how the human mind works.
What statements? That I don't think any such thing has been proven? That's not a statement that needs to be backed up. That I'm pretty sure all they've actually established is correlation, and any scientist will tell you correlation does not mean causation? Again, belief, not statement of fact.By the way how come you guys never back up your statements? Those studies at least do that.
Not exactly. One can simply scrutinise the data given. In this case, for example, no baseline was determined. This is rather important and I have trouble believing a legit experiment would be so sloppy.That puts you in a position of doing the same if you want to disagree. That is how science works.
You don't know how science works. Gotcha.Someone states something backed up by some set of dataand if you want to proof him wrong you have to deliver another set of data about the same thing that rebutts the other one's data.
Skipping this since it doesnt'seem to be aimed at me.All you are doing is just keep reaffirming yourselves without proof. You keep talking about proof that you claim exists but do not mention how or where to find it.
A german book, not a peer-reviewed study we can actually look at?I now will do a mad step in this direction and give you my source of knowledge. It is Rita Steckel's book "Aggresionen in Videospielen: Gibt es Auswirkungen auf das Verhalten von Kindern?" published by Waxmann Verlag in Münster, New York, München, and Berlin in 1998.
Yeah, I can see how you got to your conclusion. You fail at research.
Oh shit, it doesn't even back up your original claim. That's just....I'd roll on the floor laughing, but I recently injured my leg and don't want to risk hurting it in the fall.On the bottomline the study says that the longterm effects of playing violent videogames for too long people will get desensitized and thus tend to more readily resort to violence because the desensitization removes an important antagonist of violent behaviour. There is a lot more to it but I think I made my point clear. If anyone wants to know more go read the book I posted. You will be more knowledgable for it.
But since you're talking about it, I'm assuming this study appeared in a peer-review journal somewhere that we can verify? Perhaps link to that. Anyone can publish a book drawing conclusions without scientific scrutiny, especially on a hot-button topic.
