Unsupported arguments

shitmystudentswrite:

My favorite forum of writing is social media because I do not have to worry about my lack of evidence while arguing a point.

Oooooh! I have seen some very heavily supported arguments via social media. I’d love to have a bowl of popcorn and watch this student post an unsupported argument around some of the people in my social media circles. :)

i don’t want to live in a world where i’m not allowed to enjoy both Shakespeare and Ke$ha.

Wake up in the mornin’ feel quite Hamlet-y

Grab my skull, I’m out the door, I’m gonna act real shitty

Before I leave, overthink if I’m on the right track

Cuz if I kill my uncle tonight, he ain’t comin back

I’m talkin trying to kill my foe foe
But instead kill everyone I know know
9 deaths in a row row

KADE!!! This is for you (and Rhi) - oh, Sarah, you too

If the human race was to die out and Apes survived, the human race would be able to make a comeback…right? NO! If we truly evolved from Apes, then there should be a high probability that a monkey would give birth to a human. In addition, if evolution were real, why do we not see Apes turning into humans now in today’s time? 

Can’t tell if this is a willfully ignorant, closed minded, likely-Republican or Tea Party student, or just a victim of our horrendous educational system.

The blog’s called shitmystudentswrite. This post is an example of a student’s terrible argument. The blog is pretty sad-funny, you should check it out.

Clarification - I know what the blog is. I get that it’s a student’s terrible argument. I just don’t know if the student in question is willfully ignorant (which I often associate with the Uber-Christians, Republicans, Tea-Partiers, and many types of asshole), or if this student honestly didn’t get enough science in their educational background to understand the basics. Either is entirely possible.
