Quote# 71212

No. I have no reason to believe gravity as we know it existed. The forces and balance of forces may have been quite different. Ever wonder how they built the early pyramids?

No evidence exists for gravity as we know it, to have existed, why would I need to disprove it???

I got a sharp pain in my temple just as I was reading this? Coincidence? hm

I can't... I don't know what to...

What the fuck.

Can christians be any more stupid? Are they actually proud of their ignorance?

I am so ashamed of my country for allowing this horseshit to endure.

Kepler's Laws, which accurately describe the motion of the moon, the apparent motion of the sun and the procession of the seasons - all of which are mentioned before Noah - can be accurately derived from the Law of Gravity. What better explanation would you offer for them?

Smoke a joint and settle down.

"Can christians be any more stupid?"

I'm not sure. They keep outdoing themselves every day.

"Are they actually proud of their ignorance?"

I'd have to say 'yes'. No doubt about it.

Meet yer neighbor! :D :D :D

Here's a penny... drop it. See it go down to the ground? That is gravity. Simple, yes?

Life imitates art:

Lois: Oh my god, he just walked right over the edge.
Peter: Of course he did, Christians don't believe in gravity.

I'm afraid this isn't as bizarre as we'd like to think. This is just an extreme form of one of the most common failings of logic we see in people who haven't been taught, or managed to teach themselves, critical thinking - which is a whole hell of a lot of people. They lack understanding of the basic concepts of "burden of proof" and "Occam's razor."

Honestly, before I'd read explicit explanations of these two concepts, I would have had trouble explaining exactly why dad's reasoning is wrong, although I would have recognized that it was faulty somehow. (And I learned that stuff from my own reading, not because any science or philosophy or other class had taught them to me... our schools are lousy at this stuff, if they even try at all, which is rarely.)

I'm going with Poe on this one. The guy has a picture of Data from STNG as his forum picture and the subtitle undefeated under his name.

@Night Jaguar:

Nice. What episode is that?

Oh, and with regards to this...

"Can christians be any more stupid? Are they actually proud of their ignorance?"

Come on, you know perfectly well there are plenty of Christians smarter than this, and plenty of non-Christians with little grasp of critical/logical thinking. Sure, there's a disproportionate amount of this silliness in the thinking of certain varieties of Christians, but let's not act like fundies and run around painting with mile-wide brushes.

Grammar definitely exists though, just not at Christian Forums.

They build the pyramids from the top down.

Go jump off Burj Dubai and then you can get back to me about gravity.

@Wehpudicabok

The episode deals with Peter and Lois going on a second honeymoon trip and eventually getting the film for Passion of the Christ 2, which Peter is determined to destroy.

The quote refers to Mel Gibson walking off the edge of Mount Rushmore.



As for the quote, I can only say that I wish this sort of attitude from a fundie surprised me. Really hoping this one is a poe.

Well the theory of gravity is just a theory, it could just as easily be wrong!

That doesn't even...he just....what.

And later in the forum, someone asked him if rain falling was proof of gravity: "No. The earth was atwered from below. Further proof it had to be very different." I just couldn't read past that.

If this is a Poe, he's hilarious. If he isn't, on the other hand...

Is that the same "Dad" whose inane comments were always good for LULZ back in the earlier days of FSTDT. Glad to see you're still as fucking nuts as ever, Dad.
By the way, whatever the gravity, mass and inertia are still the same, which means shifting large blocks of stone for pyramids still poses a problem. One the Egyptians figured out by the way, even if you're to stupid to figure that out.
