My mother always told me to not pole fun at the mentally ill/retarded. So I won't.

But I can mock your web design. Would it kill you window-lickers to use a regular blog format, or does cramming as much sh*t into a small space somehow lend truthiness to your site?

On a different forum back in the day, we were making fun of this guy, and he actually showed up to defend himself. (Must have been Googling) He cut-and-pasted a section from the book discussing how, from now on, he would refer to the Apollo missions as the "Concorde" missions, since it damages the soul of a child every time the child utters the name of a pagan god.

And if you look at the list of subjects on the first page, that's actually a list of things he thinks he's disproved. When he refers to the "electron interpretation," he actually thinks that he's disproved the idea that the properties of matter are due to the interaction of electrons. Near as I can figure, he's some sort of occasionalist.

I actually dialoged with him for a while, and kept asking him how, if electrons a quantum mechanics were false, did electron microscopy, diffraction-based epitaxial growth models, high-electron mobility transistors, and resonant tunnel diodes actually function. He never got back to me on that.

He's obviously just a crackpot doing business with a vanity press, and it would simply be sad, if it wasn't for the fact that somewhere out there a homeschooling mom is going to decide that his books would make a nice science curriculum.

/Boy, it would be awesome if he wound up here on Fark...

Wisconsin will show us the way! If they are successful the public schools will be shut down, the funds and facilities diverted to the churches so the snowflakes can get a proper education. The text books are already ready to go but someone will have to get to work flattening the globes!

I just wonder if they will take the next step and separate the boys from the girls? White from the coloreds?

Martian_Astronomer: diffraction-based epitaxial growth models


Ugh, I meant diffraction-based epitaxial growth monitors, like the use of RHEED to monitor the growth rate in MBE.

CSB (I hope): In college in WI I wandered into a Baptist church for a short time (until I felt my brain starting to fail). Another student mentioned Jeebus turning water into wine. "Oh, no," they said. "We believe it was vinegar." So they drank vinegar? I saw nowhere in the Bible that alcohol was forbidden, so what was their problem?

So I think you are correct that if WI goes to a fundie-run school system they will be the worse for it. Mind you, some of my best friends were locals so there was hope for them. Course some of my friends might have voted for Walker, so you never know, do you?

The backbone of Darwinism is not biological evolution per se, but electronic interpretation, the tenet that all physical, chemical and biological processes result from a change in the electron structure of the atom which, in turn, may be deciphered through the orderly application of mathematics, as outlined in quantum mechanics.

What the fark does this even mean?

What kind of pseudo-scientific "What the Bleep do We Know" ripoff, bamboozling Deepak Chopra bullshiat is this?!?!?!?

Makh: I went into the field of chemistry, and while this is a big planet, I never thought that the reproducible and easily derived information I knew, would offend so many people.


When I was growing up, there was a period when by dad fell under the sway of some rather extreme fundamentalist nutballs. For several years, whenever anyone brought up quantum mechanics, he would insist that the idea of wave-particle duality was an attempt by anti-Christian scientists to inject eastern mysticism into physics and undermine traditional Christianity-based western thought.

There was also another guy I met in college who once argued with me that "all that physics stuff is just a theory, like evolution. I know how this stuff works in the real world." He was attempting to deny the validity of Ek = 0.5*m*v2, thinking that it had conflicted with his experiences.

Having dealt with that sort of thing in real life makes Poe's Law much trickier for me.

/That was... that... we're doomed


I don't know, was it:
The quest to solve the mystery surrounding the advent of light on the first day of recorded history continues. The incoherent reasoning of the scientific council relative to the attributes of light are highlighted. The photon, a highly imaginative ghost particle, is conjured up in a failed attempt to explain the photoelectric effect.

The greatest justice could be achieved by denying the religious the advantage of phenomina they deny. In his case, heat, light, and atoms.

AMonkey'sUncle: I saw nowhere in the Bible that alcohol was forbidden, so what was their problem?


Some parts of the Bible counsel against drinking wine and strong spirits and other sections state if you want to drink wine or strong spirits go ahead. It is almost like the Bible is contradictory.

Its too bad that this junk is the inevitable result of young earth creationism, believing in a 6000 year old earth doesn't require ignoring the evidence of a single branch of science but darn near every field from geology to astrophysics. Which never fails to humor me when this ignorance is then propagated using tools (such as the internet) that rely upon the very science it condemns to function.

Tickle Mittens: [The quest to solve the mystery surrounding the advent of light on the first day of recorded history continues.]


especially since the 'simple' book has light showing up on day 1, then the sun showing up on day 4.

at least in genesis 1 - i don't think the 2nd variety even troubles itself with things like suns and moons.

It seems to me that the people funding and advocating projects like this need something that modern science isn't delivering, and that culturally we have placed in opposition to science. Our facts and their Truth are fighting it out in the same domain, and I'm not sure that turns out well for either side. A gnostic Truth suffers when it has to be quantified and empiricised, and Science suffers when it has to take a stand as "True" rather than "The best and most useful understanding we currently have of these measured facts." I often wonder if most of these problems come from trying to reconcile two unrelated realms. Perhaps we might to better to separate them into different categories, which don't require consistency between them. In someone's mind, it could be a fact that the fossil record is consistent with the modern synthesis of evolution without lessening the truth of Genesis.
