We all know that science has confirmed that extreme conservatism is linked to low intelligence (which explains right-wing disdain for it), but it is not often we see it so perfectly demonstrated. Monumental doofus Ray Comfort attempted to use the Bible to prove that gravity does not exist in space.
The post originally said that gravity does not exist in space, but was later edited to make him sound less monumentally stupid.
Please…take all the time you need for this to sink in:
As Peter Griffin once said, “Christians don’t believe in gravity.” Comfort’s moronic real-life Family Guy joke was quickly mocked by any thinking person who happened to show up, but managed to find itself shared over 2,000 times and to accumulate more than 5,000 likes.
Unfortunately, many diehards blindly and ignorantly parroted Comfort’s moronic claim, praising him for spreading the Biblical truth about the Satanic claims about gravity (it’s just a theory, right?):
In the end, Comfort declared atheists the winners of this spirited debate we should not be having in 2014. However, he attempted to salvage what little pride is possible in his anti-science stance by quoting a religious opinion of Sir Isaac Newton and claiming that evolution is an “unscientific belief.”
Now, as Comfort had admitted his monumental error as one of the um…”many” people who thought gravity does not exist in space, his devoted followers attempted to spin his monumental misstep into even further support for the Bible. In fact, many of them used the same verse Comfort used to disprove gravity!
One commenter offered Comfort some amazing advice: If you don’t even know that gravity exists in space, perhaps it is time to stop lecturing people on scientific matters.
