My dumb friend does not trust in folding@home - Page 3

post #21 of 24
To be honest, if he doesn't want to believe it, he won't regardless of what sources or papers you cite. Most of my friends like the core concept, that people can help out donating spare computing power. However, they don't like the fact that should something happen, you won't be compensated at all since it is completely voluntary. They would prefer to donate money instead, and that's a whole different argument concerning how effective it is

I, any many others, fold because we do think it has benefits. There are others who do not believe folding has any benefits.
The belief of any individual should not be the determining factor in what others believe. People have varied opinions and they have every right to these opinions.
It doesn't matter what others believe, what matters is what you believe.

Honestly I like the idea of Folding@Home -- I don't like the idea of finding cures to cancer -- we need to be figuring out WHY we get it.

The reason I think we get cancer (and a bunch of other health problems that I won't mention here) is because of what we eat.
It's not just that, I also think it's one more thing.

Looking at too much blue light (or whiter light) at night, and not getting enough sleep // or daylight exposure around noon.

Just these three things, I really do believe would help us ALL prevent getting cancer -- what do you all think.

Have you seen "Forks over Knives"? It's hopefully a truthful documentary, and I hope the "research" can be proven there.

I do like F@H because it provides research about how the human body works - whether that's a good thing or not, it's research.
I chose Alzheimer's because I guess once you got it, well, there's not much you can do, so yeah we need cures for that.
