Quote# 87048

The problem is that E=mc2 does not meaning anythimg that makes sense. Anyone is welcome to try to explain it here. Eating a pound of cake does not cause one's energy to increase by the speed of light squared.

Um... just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it doesn't make sense. To me, a² = b² + c² didn't make any sense until I heard 10 explanations, but now I get it just fine.

But, then again, you are Andy Schlafly. I just hope you never get any serious influence on anything that matters even remotely on a larger-scale basis.

Oh, and Andy... please, shut up. The grown-ups are trying to do physics.

The half-sentence, 'does not meaning anythimg that makes sense,' pretty much sums up why you shouldn't be commenting on things like this, Schlafly.

You don't really want to get into the "doesn't make sense" argument when your own defense is the bible, do you?

Is this guy seriously claiming to know better than Einstein? Wow.

It makes sense to everyone who puts in the time and effort to understand it.

Eating a pound of cake does not cause one's energy to increase by the speed of light squared.

Well, first off you need to define the constant C at your reference point. And what is the mass of the cake anyway?

Define your variables. Then we can talk about how wrong you are with the rest of the calculation.

Haa haa, this guy is excellent.

That's because the human body does not break the cake down to subatomic particles, stupid. How on Earth do you think that your beloved Hiroshima-and-Nagasaki-destroying nuclear bombs worked?

I thought this was a put-on till I read who said it. Andy Schlafly really is that dumb.

I love how 99% of the commenters on the page are trying to talk sense into him, only to be met with a wall of incredible obtuseness. It's astounding how someone like Schlafly can maintain his idiocy in the face of not only liberal atheists, but other conservative Christians as well (his "conservative Bible" project didn't go over well at all with them) and his own physicist brother. If mule-headedness was a superpower, he would be unbeatable.

Hiroshima. Nagasaki. Hundreds of above ground, under water and under ground tests.

All of these prove that E=mc2 is correct.

Fail on a nuclear scale.

I can't understand it, therefore it's false! Which is why Andy thinks that most things are false.

This level of stupidity is to be expected from someone who thinks that the theory of relativity is a liberal plot to get more people to have abortions.

"Eating a pound of cake does not cause one's energy to increase by the speed of light squared."

By one pound times the speed of light squared, yes it does. You are one pound more massive after eating the cake, so you have one pound times c squared more total energy.

Sadly, unless you are Captain Atom, you can only ever access the tiniest fraction of all that energy.

I didn't know we had nuclear fission reactors in our stomachs. I thought we just digested the food and got whatever energy and nutrients we can and crapped out the rest (which still has enough nutrients and energy to fertilize plants). I hadn't realized that our stomachs could split every atom in a pound of cake. But wait, if we could do that why would we need to eat so much food? A spoonful of sugar should be able to power us for months.

Andy is proving his own theorem:

One can never truly reach total dumbass. A master, such as Andy, can always say something twice as dumb as his last statement.

"The problem is that E=mc2 does not meaning anythimg that makes sense. Anyone is welcome to try to explain it here. Eating a pound of cake does not cause one's energy to increase by the speed of light squared."

And yet you managed an engineering degree, did you? In what field, Tinker Toys? Certainly it wasn't anything involving mathematics or physics.

I don't know about you, but I usually either keep quiet when I don't understand what people are talking about, or ask them politely for an explanation, which I then try my best to understand.

Stating loudly that "It doesn't make sense because I don't understand it" is not a wise move, if you want to be seen to have average intelligence, ya know.

So? Giving you a broken jaw does not decrease the mosquito population. That is not to say that either one is a bad thing.
