PostSubject: My family does NOT believe in science!   Fri Jul 11, 2008 2:14 pm

On my soapbox guys because im getting fed up with BS from people saying they do not believe in science and my arguments fall on deaf ears.

So I call upon the fine word of Richard Dawkins from his fantastic book 'River Out of Eden'to shut these hypocrites up.

When you encounter one and you will soon enough, please use this quote against them!

Show me a cultural relativist at 30,000 feet and I'll show you a hypocrite! Airplanes built according to scientific principles work. Airplanes built to tribal or mythological specifications, such as the dummy planes of cargo cults in jungle clearings or the beeswaxed wings of icarus, Don't!

You always get some smart alec that hasn't been on a plane so you may need to adapt it a little to suit, but you get the basic premise.

By the way the subject quote and idea comes from the book:
RICHARD DAWKINS - How a scientist changed the way we think'
Alan Grafen & Mark Ridley.

Cheers guys,


Skepticism is the agent of reason against organized irrationalism - and is therefore one of the keys to human social and civic decency.
Stephen J Gould
