Virtually any time an argument
relies on statistics or facts, the arguer chooses statistics
which verify his/her claims while ignoring those which contradict
or undermine his/her argument. This is human nature
. It is the duty of the listener
to decide whether an out-of-context
number or sentence is representative of the whole story. Any argument can be made by using data
In reality, both sides of issues often have valid points, but you won't hear anyone involved in a debate saying that.
