    Almost as funny as the concept of an internet trump card.

    Yup. The sign of true intelligence is to reject your intellect and rely on your senses.

    How do scientists make observations?
    “Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.” -Gandhi

    Rational skepticism is not the same thing as being a conspiracy theorist.

    Never forget that only dead fish swim with the stream. -Muggeridge

    On this one free online-dating website I frequent, you can answer a myriad of questions which help determine your compatibility score when looking at other profiles.

    One of these questions is: Which is bigger, the sun or the earth? Of people, at least women, who answer this question within 100 miles of here, I'd say a good 70% of them get this answer wrong. I've wondered if this is similar to the national average, an average for people using this website, or simply a sad indictment of the Kansas science education system. So 25% believing the Sun revolves around the Earth is not surprising to me.

    I also learned that a surprising percentage pf people, perhaps 15%, don't "believe in" dinosaurs, which I attribute more to their Christian indoctrination here in the Bible Belt than to poor scientific education, however a solid majority also think astrology is a legitimate science.

    "There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung fu Monkey

    Good data. Depressing, but good.
    APF doesn't come in screaming at others about how stupid they are. APF doesn't spam NST with the same tired topic 30 times a month. APF doesn't link to some kook in his mom's basement telling you how to, "Be afraid. Be very afraid" of the world falling down around you. And, when APF is proven wrong, he acknowledges he made a mistake and moves on, rather than harping about "sheeple."

    Everyone is curious as to their reaction.

    Appeal to the 'reliability of their senses informing them of the universe.'

    Please do it. It was my birthday two days ago. Make it a birthday present for me.

    Despite courageously holding out until the final minutes of the year, the award for the dumbest tweet of 2013 goes to ... whoever this girl is:



    She is only about 4,000 years off, duh!
