The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Hell, this will come off sexist, but I'll say it anyways, and if someone gets offended then I may expand.

    The greatest empowerment for women, and their greatest roles in leadership are in being strong mothers.

    There is a difference between an opinion and propaganda.

    That's interesting. May I ask the difference what do you consider the difference to be between a neo-nazi giving his opinion and the same fellow typing out propaganda? In other words where do you draw the line? What you call propaganda, another could call opinion. To use your example of neo-nazis, opinion and propaganda could easily be one and the same.

    OPINION - A belief or conclusion held with confidence but not substantiated by positive knowledge or proof.

    PROPAGANDA - The systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause.

    See the difference?

    I saw an opinion, not a systematic propagation of a doctrine/cause.

    But you're right, in some cases, they could be conflicting. But here they weren't.

    I dont really see the big difference actually, apart from the word "Systematic" But I think most of us thinking people who like to debate things can be quite systematic in letting our opinion be heard.

    Wouldn`t real propaganda not be the pushing of ones opinion, but pushing of something you dont necessarily believe in that just comes in handy for people to believe?

    Hence the word after systematic, which it is describing: propogation.

    That would make it large scaled opinion spreading.

    That still doesn`t provide the difference between any media and propaganda

    Heh. So now you've hit the nail on the head. What is the difference between most media and propaganda? Not much.

    The key is that media SHOULD provide solely facts, while propaganda throws opinion in the mix.

    But it doesn't usually work out that way.

    Of course. It's the nature of the beast.

    You'd be AMAZED at how many people here in the U.S. think that there's no propaganda generated by our government.

    Some of them actually think that the U.S. didn't have any propaganda back in WW2.

    I have to say that I completely agree, this world is trying to get rid of the alpha-male dominance and it totally sucks. Without agressive men we would never get anything accomplished. Most countries would not even exist today if it weren't for agressive alpha-males who were determined to take land for their own uses.
    You are already dead.

    You are the one thing that gets me through my day. You are my strength when I need healing. I love you more than anyone else. I love you more than anything. I wish I could have you all the time but it would be bad for me. I think of you when I am tired, alone, or achy. I love you Optimum Whey Protein Powder.*

    *Times have changed and I have found a new love that is better than Optimum Whey, and her name is Colleen. Just wanted to let you guys know. She is the best and she doesn't mind me working out religiously.

    Reinier and Gyno cool to see that you agree with me, I think hehe.

    My Suggestion is that every man that is going to be a father, has to watch the series, The little house on the prarie, and then show that he understands why the father in that series is a good father.

    That and people in extreme situations shouldnt be allowed to have children.

    And a good fathers job is to make your life safe and comfortable in social terms, and your outlook on life safe.

    men who doesnt have these factors while growing up, often gets and unsafe look on life, and developed an extreme defensive reaction to situations there is no need for any agressiveness at all.

    Could it be anything to do with the recent homo decades? People 'coming out' and stuff... people suddenly realising/deciding they are homo. Dressing up like women.

    also, on a more serious note, might dairy also be an environmental estrogen? doesnt your regular grocery store milk contain lots of **** from the farmers to get the cows to produce more milk?
