Re: Islam's latest contributions to peace



Does twelve seem like three times six to you?



Saying that the number "tripled" is disingenuous for at least two different reasons:

1. It didn't triple. The proportion from females tripled because the number from males dropped by 50%.
2. The total number was so low that even the doubling is not statistically significant. (See #1.)

You have posted a beautiful example of people with an agenda trying to use statistics to give you evidence to back your preconceived notions. Do you care? Doubt it.

Here is my "alternative headline" based on the same exact statistics:

NUMBER OF TERRORISTS IN THE UK DROPS BY NEARLY 50% IN LAST FIVE YEARS

Does half of 156 seem like 113 to you?

1998 to 2010 = 13 years
156/13 = 12

2011 to 2015 = 5 years
113/5 = 22.6

You have posted a beautiful example of someone with an agenda trying to use incorrect math to back preconceived notions.

Here is my "alternative headline" based on the same exact statistics:

NUMBER OF TERRORISTS IN THE UK INCREASES BY 88% OVER LAST FIVE YEARS

Now do the same for just females and let us know what you get.

Disingenuous indeed. It's actually quadrupled.

Re: Islam's latest contributions to peace

While Tech continues his wild fantasies, back in sub-Saharan England.....

A Muslim girl captured on camera twerking in Britain has apologized for “disrespecting” Islam and hijab following the backlash from the Muslim community.

The girl, whose name remains unknown, was criticized after video filmed in the UK city of Birmingham, showed her twerking while wearing a hijab. The footage was viewed well over 1 million times on social media and has received thousands of negative comments, including death threats towards the girl.

She was not doing this at a mosque. Her crime was simply having fun and dancing in public while wearing a hijab, a symbol of misogyny that multicultural apologists claim is harmless. So basically, since she has to wear that silly thing every day, anything she does that isn't holy and pious could be considered disrespectful to Islam and worthy of a death sentence. Just like any other religion!

Re: Islam's latest contributions to peace

Is this the part where you realize that the headline that you're circulating and I were both twisting those numbers? The proportion of females relative to males tripled.

One man's twist is another man pulling numbers out of his ass, I guess.

Re: Islam's latest contributions to peace

You mean like saying that the number of female terrorists in the U.K. tripled in the last five years? Sure I'll agree with that.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.

Re: Islam's latest contributions to peace

Why are your numbers bouncing all over the place if the headline that you cited represented "objective reality"?

From the same methodologically-questionable report:

Suicide attack arrests down 65% year-over-year in most recent data.

Down 73% since the high-water mark in 2009.

Less than 1% of terrorists in the UK were from Syria.
