Every 5th headline: scientists are stupid LOL
Every 500th headline: why Americans don't trust scientists?

Actually scientists are stupid. However they fully admit to it and constantly work to fix their stupid through experiments and research


Everyone else just picks wax out of their ear to add to the homemade candle

All of humanity is blaringly stupid.  Some people just work to try and reduce the volume a bit...

Think about all of the things "we" know, just about our own little mudball.  And all the stuff we "discover" day to day, year by year... All of the tech we develop, the gadgets we make, the mysteries we unlock...

That information is mainly held and understood by an extreme minority of people across the globe.  If Earth were bathed in a massive EMP wave from the depths of space, and all tech got sparked to oblivion... Could you make electricity?  A water wheel?  Heat?  How much knowledge that has led us to Today, would you be able to recreate on your own?

Just an exercise in humility.  No real answers needed.

They already did this in Doctor Who. It was called "Inferno" and didn't end well.

How do those Limey bastards know how to predict the future!? Must be the tea...

Humans are ignorant. Science aims to correctly mend that deficiency. The truly stupid are suspicious of science and will rather remain ignorant.

Better than oil companies just drilling baby and starting a mud volcano , 15 years and still going.

"In total, a dozen holes have hit magma at three different places (in the world) and nothing bad happened."

You idiots.

"Science" is simply trial and error. We live in the boundary between "Cool" and "Oops".

We. Make. Holes in teeth!

Oh great. Because of that headline I will now think of volcanoes as Earth-zits.

I wonder why these things are so often super sulfuric.
Must be rough working with an observatory that's always so farty, and ya know, dangerous and all, but farty.

"In total, a dozen holes have hit magma at three different places (in the world) and nothing bad happened."

Tell that to the families of the Rittenhouse victims.

Or maybe we really live in the Grimm world and they will find Volcanalis waiting for them at home later on

No, the just read history and understand it.

Once you understand history, you can project, in a general sort if way, what will happen in the future.

No, no you cannot. At all. Remember, according to the people in the 50s we were supposed to have flying cars and lunar bases with ocean cities 20 years ago. You could only predict the most vague and useless shiat ever with that logic, and the reason is simple.

There are far too many ways to change events that are beyond the control of anyone alive, and you have no way of knowing which event is going to set things in motion. If you stand before God and tell him what the most significant event in your life was he would laugh in your face and tell you that only happened because of some tiny little thing you dont even remember from 5 years before that set the entire chain of events into motion and led you to that "most significant choice"
