Good to know we don't have to worry about Iran getting a nuke, since they are impossible./

Apparently Andy must also believe that the human stomach achieves digestion by breaking atoms down into subatomic particles, given his "proof" above.

///lol, explains "heartburn" I guess....

This is why our science scores continue to sink. The number of people who believe this way continues to grow. We can laugh but pretty soon they are going to be asking for legislation restricting travel to prevent people falling off the edge of the world.

Haha, saw this a few months ago. There's lots more fun stuff in the "Theory of Relativity" pages, which has gems like these:

The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world.[note 1]

There are no Counterexamples to the Bible. This is in contrast with:
Counterexamples to Evolution (60 and growing)
Counterexamples to Relativity (39 and growing)
Counterexamples to an Old Earth (39 and growing)
Counterexamples to Global Warming (under construction; 6 and growing)

Tell that to the survivors in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Andy.

For those who might not know, this buffoon, this numbskull, this epic of derpitude, is the son of RR icon Phyllis Schlafly.

How did it happen, Phyllis?
Drop him on his head?
Too much "Biblical" discipline?
Paint chips in his formula?

Inquiring Functional minds want to know.

Does Little Mister Schlafly use a GPS? (To achieve accuracy requirements, GPS uses principles of general relativity to correct the satellites' atomic clocks.)

Andy, Jesus thinks you're a fucking moron.

Hey, Schlafy would've fit right in with these guys:

Our students will be so much further ahead in science and math and rational thinking when the Theocracy is in power. Liberal claptrap. Commie Plot. Socialist Agenda. No different than the Taliban. Wisdom is pain. Ignorance bliss. "Timmy? When heat is applied to water and it turns to vapor, what is that called?" "GODS WILL." "Very good Timmy. No go reflect on his mysterious ways."

Even more depressing. Andy has an engineering degree from Princeton, which means he probably took the same physics classes I did (though at different times). I know for sure we didn't address relativity freshman year, and he likely took EE classes sophomore year and onward, but jeez louise, E = mc^2 is one the most verified, incontrovertible consequences of the theory of special relativity. Does the term "atomic bomb" mean anything to Andy? I swear, if it were possible, I'd petition Princeton to rescind his BSE just on the basis of this one article.

Well, I tried to tweet this article from LGF and got error 400. Anyone else have the same problem?

Yes.

I tweeted Charles about it.

I scanned the Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge entry. It's so fractally wrong, that I wouldn't know where to start correcting it. Most of what is there is a collection of post facto hand waving arguments that, "Yes, the Bible is always right" and "Modern science has only just begun to catch up to how doggone smart those Bible writers were."

This is the usual genre in Quranic apologetics.

Sadly there is a market for this sort of stupidity out there. The lack of critical thinking in education is astonishing.

Actual overheard question (from an adult): "When you burn a candle, where does the wax go?" I suppose wondering about such mysteries at 30 is better than not thinking about it at all, but that woman's education apparently failed her. The woman she was with didn't seem to know either.

22 calochortus  Tue, Apr 24, 2012 8:19:00am

OK, I just read the "Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge" entry. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Anyway, here's a suggestion Andy-pick a few things from the bible's science sections and select the actual predictions. Some things that will produce new and useful scientific discoveries. How about clean energy or a cure for cancer? Perhaps a little something that will give us a tool for fighting viruses? You don't like relativity? Where does the bible contain the clues to help us understand physics?
Going back and thinking something predicted what we now know is easy. It's also pretty useless. Be bold-predict something for the future and then put your money where your mouth is and support the research. I won't be holding my breath.

23 SanFranciscoZionist  Tue, Apr 24, 2012 9:54:32am

One correction here: "I do not understand how physics works and don't care to try" is not a 'mystical belief', it is an awkwardly worded statement of absolute truth from the mind of Andy Schlafly.
