I like most of the qualities about my girlfriend.
But some of the shit she believes is fucking retarded.
She believes in ghosts and thinks the moon landing was fakes. She won't even begin to listen to why there is a slight possibility it was real. It actually make me mad inside. She just shrugs it off with a "I can believe what I want" and then tries to show me a shit YouTube video titled "5 reasons the moon landing was faked" and calls it evidence.
It makes my blood boil someone can be that stupid and then I think why am I wasting my time and money on her.
Seriously, am I over reacting?
Didn't realise she was this fucking stupid until tonight. When she genuinely got upset after I called her uneducated for not believing in the moon landing.
She also told me she believes in mermaids and genuinely thinks she's right because I can't prove they do not exist.
these things don't honestly matter that much, unless they're indicative of a larger problem.
tell her the most important time to be inquisitive is when you're examining your own beliefs, and then show her how you do that.
Really only one option, because the result feeds into the other.
Try to re-educate with a focus on showing her real mysteries and wonders. The beauty of the henges and the astronomy of the ancient world rather than fantasy harlequin novels. The goal is to crowd out unsubstantiated bullshit with real science. For example, talk to her about the 9th planet discussion we've got going. A real "Planet X" found through gravitational survey. You can then go into other neat space topics and leave the crap behind.
Rinse repeat until she's bringing you Nova clips and laughing at her horoscope.
Or she'll revolt and you dump her for being a dumb bitch.
Option two is starting with dumping the moron.
Dude fucking lol. This thread is hilarious. Dating is interesting because you learn all about the small things that people believe. I'm not sure I could date somebody gullible enough to believe those conspiracy YouTube vids though
tons of girls in Russia believe the exact same thing. Probably even several thousand that can school your ass in astrophysics. Thing is they're culturally brought up to be superstitious and indoctrinated in schools to think the moon landings were fake. Thing is the reason the moon landings are so obvious to us is we trust our sources of indoctrination. Very few people that believe the moon landings were real really have first hand evidence to the contrary that they weren't staged. Even so, statistical likelihood would make us say that it is extremely far fetched to believe the alternative, but if we had different assumptions such as our indoctrinated in Russian schools, then we might think otherwise. That doesn't mean such a Russian girl can't kick your ass in chess or have interesting ideas on international petrolium regulations or Plato's Republic. Or maybe your girlfriend really is a dumbo, but if she's hot naked and good in bed, who cares?
Here's a neat little experiment that proves we went to the moon.
There was a mirror left on the moon, so if you line up a laser right and fire it at the moon it'll reflect back. Measured properly it will also tell you how far away the moon is.
Due to tidal locking of the moon you can perform this experiment any night.
youre not overreacting. you are facing a dilemma that you know compromises the future of your relationship but at the same time the issue is too small to actually break up. this will bother you forever, it will linger with you forever until you have gathered enough indications to realize that you should find a partner that is more suitable.
just be glad that you didnt figure this out 3 years into your marriage or something.
ask yourself: what is your ultimate goal for this or any relationship for that matter?
is it just casual dating, did your relationship come with an expiration date? or are you seeking someone to settle with?
