i don't read Pharyngula enough!

I see stupid people
You really don't want to wake up to this kind of thing, and you might want to stop right now: reading on may kill brain cells.

Ed Brayton spots an incredible essay, Once Upon a Time When America Had Christmas. Imagine a future when Christmas wrapping paper is as illegal as heroin…uh, right.

Skeptico finds a whole collection of jaw-droppers at Fundies Say the Darndest Things! My brain hurts after reading their ideas about science.

Only a retard would try to use science to determine the ultimate reality of our existence.

Quick—alert the physicists!

Gravity is NOT a theory. It is completely understood.

People have some very strange ideas about evolution.

god exists because evolution would have given me eyes in the back of my head if there really were such a thing.

evolution would be a mindless bolder of chance and time rolling forward produsing 7 legged dogs with 3 heads and 300 pound spiders with fish fins and the chain from ape to man would still be very visible in our world.

Then there are the amazing cases of overlooking the obvious.

One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn't possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.

What strikes me as odd that is, given the current state of genetics, no one has compared simian dna to homo sapien. The differences should be obvious and radical.

Chilling stuff, isn't it? These people probably live very ordinary lives, and somehow believe that their strange sheltered ignorance is an accurate model of the real world.



Oh my freakin' gawd! You GOTTA read the Xmas essay! A-flippin'-mazing! The imagination of these wackos is incredible! I love how "liberals" manage to take over the country, even though the repugs are in total control of the government! And, of course, the scenario has nothing to do with anything that any "liberal" has ever expoused or would want for any reason. You just gotta marvel at the victimization of the christians!!

The "Fundies" site is wild, as well! Scary to think that these people co-exist with us!! It's like beings from another, illogical planet!
