How a double standard works, part 2

“60% of experts agree with you on this question. [citation needed]”

–Well, that just proves it! A majority of experts agree with me! Obviously it’s true, and everyone who says otherwise is deluding themselves, given this evidence!

“90% of experts disagree with you on this question. [cites an extensive survey]”

–Bah, like it matters. Appeal to authority is a fallacy, you know. Experts don’t know everything. We shouldn’t just grovel to them like we can’t know things by common sense. Anyway, I bet this information isn’t reliable in the first place.
