Most people are complete dumb fucks. Simple minded idiots with no ability to think only the ability to follow the idiot box. Those types of people are PATHETIC.
Mike, while I am sympathetic to the intent of your comment I would have been slightly more intelligent in its execution. I would also be a bit more sympathetic to a society that has been conditioned (read brainwashed) over many decades by extremely capable practitioners. We are up against massive odds not easily dismissed by simple blame cast on victims.That said, I also cannot remove the responsibility of self-education from the general society who, for the most part, have abdicated such responsibility. In my view, we ought to do everything in our power to remove the wool which has been firmly lodged over our collective society's eyes with intelligent AND persuasive intercourse of the conversational variety.
How do these people represent the masses? You can go to a Ron Paul convention and ask people "how old is the Earth" and get a lot of ignorant answers. Do they represent the mass of Ron Paul followers? Probably not a good example.
The age of the earth is basically an educated guess, with a margin of error of several million years, and there isn't an article on it every time one opens the internet or a story about it every time one turns on the news. Not only not a good example, an asinine one.
That is an apples to oranges comparison. The age of the earth is not verifiable. Both names used for the fraudcare act, have been bandied about in all forms of media for the last 4 years. So not a great example Jerry.
Actually, all the available evidence (radiometric dating) shows the age of the Earth to be 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years (4.54 × 109 years ± 1%).
