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.

If you divide an atom in half the energy released is equal to the mass of the atom times the speed of light, squared. If you don't believe this is possible, then you probably didn't live in Hiroshima or Nagasaki in 1945.

Now come now Andy, it's one thing you show complete incredulity on scientific topics that are abstract and hard to see in our daily lives. But this one is pretty demonstrable.

What the hell is this poster eating?
















Oh wait...Andy...that explains a lot.

Andy has the same argument for science every time. I refuse to learn about this, therefore it's wrong!

OK, let's flip your argument:

How many pounds of cake would it take to equal the destructive capacity of 13 kilotons of TNT?

WHERE IS SHELDON COOPER WHEN WE NEED HIM?

Andy, Andy, Andy, when a person eats cake it reacts chemically in the body, not nuclear. But why am I botherin?. Anyone as wantonly stupid as you doesn't care about explanations.

I don't think Sheldon would bother to address this level of fail, and nor should anyone else, to quote Wolfgang Pauli, Andy is not even wrong.

Just because you are too stupid to understand something does not make it false.

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

In Andy's case, energy must be decreased, because his pound of cake gets converted into a ton of bull$hit!

What? I mean, just WTF? I think we have a new contender for most ignorant statement of the year.

What's next? A fundie declaration that germs don't cause disease? Schlafly, I didn't think even you were this dumb.

That's because all the lead you ate as a small child is shielding you, Andy. For the rest of us, it works just fine. It has to be pound cake though. Not just any old cake ....

I swear, Conservapedia is really a hoax being perpetrated by the editors of The Onion. It HAS to be.

Mr Schlafly, being unable to understand a scientific equation does not mean that it does not make sense.
Seriously, if it was explained to you using a child's first book of physics with illustrations, maybe by way of a little caricature of Einstein with a floppy white moustache and white lab coat, in simple words, you could wrap your mind around it. If then, if it did make sense, then would you admit it was correct?
(Note:I am not mocking those who can't keep up with the others because their brains aren't as able to understand and process facts. Sometimes, the most simple, basic, route, is the best place to start).
I swear, you fundamentalists hate the idea of education and praise some poor kid who can hardly add as being a gift of god and punish anyone with eternal fire if they read and try and better themselves.

I used to find this guy funny, now I just sort of pity him.

To answer what Aschlafly obviously views as a hard question:

Assuming I were the editor of a leading mainstream scientific journal, would I publish a well-written paper criticizing relativity?

Answer: I'd make it the cover article.

U-Th-Pb. The mass of uranium-the mass of particles given off during its decay =/= the mass of lead it decays into. Why? Some is lost to energy, see Einstein's equation. That's why a small amount of nuclear fuel has so much energy. Oh, never mind. Freshman physics is beyond you.

Obviously not. After all... the cake is a lie.

So you're saying "Come to the dumb side, we have cake."

Dude, your stomach doesn't break things down to individual atoms, much less the subatomic level.

Grow up.

Andy once again demonstrates his masterful command of science.

Congrats Andy! You are without a doubt the most brilliant satirist on the web today. The joke is on the Conservapedia readers, this has to be the most elaborate Poe in history.

Sigh. This is what happens when your mom spends your childhood out telling other women they should be home taking care of their kids - instead of staying home and taking care of her kid.

To quote Mr. T - I pity da fool.

Oh Andy, Andy, Andy... *shakes head in disappointment*
