Only someone who is completely delusional thinks there is such a thing as normal.

EVERYBODY is somebody else's weirdo.

Normal is a statistical measure derived from social heuristics and is perfectly applicable in a narrow context.

To say there are no normal people makes sense if we consider the whole person. But when someone refers to someone else as other than normal, they are typically referencing a specific trait or quality that differs significantly from the known population.

Good to hear from you, Amarel.

Normal is a statistical measure derived from social heuristics and is perfectly applicable in a narrow context.

Yep. You are plainly correct.

However, the phrasing of the prompt question clearly indicates the assumption that the people responding to the prompt assume some meaning for normal other than a pat definition directing us to "a statistical measure derived from social heuristics."

Normal people (in the statistical sense) usually do not use normal in the statistical sense.

In other words, when you use the word normal in the statistical sense, you are most peoples' weirdo. ;-)

There is no such thing as normal, there is only what you think is normal based on your experience. For you, it may be normal to hate niggers and jews, for someone else, it may be normal to eat nothing but corn flakes and asparagus and wear a rectangular hat. Just imagine how many alien civilizations there are in the multiverse, all with their own varying ideas of what is normal. How can you say there is anything that is normal at all? How many universes out of the infinite multiverse have our same "normal" physics? If you think normal exists you are a black butt hole sucking pot head pot hole faced baboon.

I can't help it if people want to be one of those instead of accepting my objective universal facts of absolute truth.

Society decides what is normal. Societies make laws that protect the normal and protect AGAINST the AB-normal. Normals change over the years and a new normal sometimes means a new law. When a musket was a normal weapon, the Second Amendment was born. When weapons became a thousand times more deadly, they became a new "norm", and the law needs "adjustment". When religions decided men who loved men were "abnormal", laws were made. When science and education saw that it WASN'T so abnormal, new laws were made.

When it comes down to people and religions deciding to stick with the old beliefs … regardless of new knowledge … THEY become abnormal, and abnormal laws are kept OR resisted, abnormally. I don't like abnormal laws, that makes me abnormally normal. ;-)
