antidisestablishmentarianism: Buzz Aldrin punched a man for insinuating that he was never on the moon.
doyner: Waste no opportunity to foment distrust in the government but make sure you mold them into good jesusy consumers.Thanks, guys. When we no longer believe our own national achievements any more WTF do we have left? Creating a generation of science deniers ain't gonna make us great again.

Peki: I came out of a Baptist school in 6th grade knowing more than high school seniors in public school. Now it seems like it's reversed.
Diogenes: I say we send those who disbelieve to the moon and remove all doubt.
doyner: Peki: I came out of a Baptist school in 6th grade knowing more than high school seniors in public school. Now it seems like it's reversed.And the scary part is that the public schools haven't exactly gotten better on average.
Barfmaker: We seem to be going through a real anti-science period, there's pushback on vaccines, genetically modified foods, moon landing, 9/11, Obama's birf certifkat, climate change...well, you know the whack-a-doodle list.I suspect that all of it, at least obliquely, is related to the death of religion and the belief in god(s). In order for religion to not die, and in order for the belief in gods to not die, science HAS to be wrong, proof HAS to be wrong. And so, in some areas at least, there's this fight to show it to be wrong.Even the fiasco that is resistance to better health care for you guys is an example, where if people shriek loud enough, chant long enough, mean it enough, they can create reality.It's very much as if they think reality cannot be measured in an external, provable way. That's it's somehow open to interpretation.I don't think that's a conscious thing, I don't think it's anyone's strategy, but I think it's what's going on. I think this is maybe how it looks when religion dies.
walktoanarcade: antidisestablishmentarianism: Buzz Aldrin punched a man for insinuating that he was never on the moon.Right before Buzz punched the him, the guy called Buzz a liar. That was made him lose his cool, and I don't blame him. Can you imagine risking your life for science, then some snot-nose comes along and treats you like David Blane.
NewportBarGuy: When do we start purging these people?
2wolves: You don't have to spend large dollars to buy a telescope that allows anyone to see the landing sites.Who wrote that piece of crap?
Slaves2Darkness: What is really dumb is that science and religion can exist side by side. Science explains the world as we perceive it
Slaves2Darkness: Some people don't believe we have immortal souls. Do we have souls? No one knows.
Smeggy Smurf: Now imagine if the Duck Dynasty thing gets the religious tards to vote en mass. We'll wind up with this kind of thing being federally mandated. Whoops, biatching about a guy's opinion might not have been a good idea.
