    The Comet is a conspiracy by scientists.
    I don’t believe in it.

    I believe it was actually an asteroid that said “Grab yours and kiss it goodbye!”

    On the brighter side, maybe that’ll shut him up!

    You’d be amazed at some of the conspiracies scientists engage in.

    Read up on Piltdown Man.

    No one actually knows who built it, but the resulting frenzy after its discovery is actually typical of today’s science as well.

    Theories abound on who built it, but my favorite one was that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle made it as a joke. If so, he died not many years after the discovery and couldn’t fess up to it.

    The Royal College of Surgeons flatly said it was a fake. Anthropologists wouldn’t hear of it because they wanted to believe it was real. They do the same reasoning every few years each time they dig up some chimp and call it a “missing link” or a “hominid”.
    .
    And there is the difference between science and a religion. Archeology is a science that looks for facts. Anthropology is a religion that tries to force facts to fit it’s ideas. Even today, you hear the land bridge theory, despite archeology indicating that people went west across the Strait rather than east (except the Innuit), or trying to make every artifact found into a religious icon. While entertaining at times, programs like Bones get it completely wrong in that people doing that job have M.D. degrees, not anthropology degrees.

    Comet is a conspiracy promulgated by the liberal media.

    That is exactly what the global warming people actually said when scientists first theorized that the dinosaurs were not destroyed by climate change.
    But they could not refute the iridium layer.

    So now they are insisting that global warming was a major component of the Permian extinction, confident that there will not be evidence to the contrary after all this time.
    In psychology, this is called an idée fixe.
    We await with bated breath, the irrefutable facts of that matter.

    I beg to differ….


    The Kathy Reichs website


    This information also appears on the dust jacket of every “Temperance Brennan” novel she’s written as well.

    Which facts will be blithely ignored by all whose pet
    theory they do not happen to fit….

    No matter how hard they try not to be, scientists are humans, too; i.e., they try to divorce themselves from their personal feelings and concentrate on facts. Dedicated scientists will behave with the courage and honesty necessary to admit they made mistakes when they become of aware of them.

    Heck, that’s NOT a real Comet, I heard it on Rush…and he’s SOOOOO much smarter then any old scientist with years and years of intense study and experience!
    After all, Rush has a microphone, and a script written by the Republican National Committee, and we ALL know that they are NEVER wrong about anything!
    (Sarcasm filters off, now.)
