The half-life of truth was 45 years

See, this is why science should be trusted so rarely and faith will ultimately win in the end. I mean, let's look at science versus, say, Christianity. Jesus was born 2000 years ago, and since then Christianity has gone on truckin'. Meanwhile, science has been wrong (2000/45=44.444) almost 45 times. And each time it's wrong by half, so that's essentially a doubling of its wrongness every 90 years. That means that science has been rendered 100 percent wrong (2000/90=22.22) 22 times since Jesus, which is the equivalent of a 2200 percent error rate. It's astonishing people still get sucked in.

A fact, by definition, is true. A hypothesis, by definition, is unconfirmed. A republican site called Reason, by definition, is not worth reading.

Carn: Rapmaster2000: How come "scientists" can put a man on the moon, but they can't keep my feet from smelling?  It's pretty obvious if you think about it.  They didn't put a man on the moon.  I'm a skeptic.  I read Reason.

Gold Bond Medicated Foot Powder. You're welcome.


I'm saving my Gold Bond to counteract the imminent hyperinflation caused by Obama's Magic Money Printing Press.  Gold Bond isn't just a piece of paper.  Gold Bond has real, intrinsic value.  When the shiat hits the fan, and you're burning dollars to keep warm, I'll be living the high life off of my stash of physical Gold Bond.

Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so
