They also don’t believe that space travel is real.
‘Something there is that doesn’t like knowledge’….and refuses to accept any real human connections with shared intelligence. They’re BETTER and more ‘in the know’….
Hey, 52% of the British voted for Brexit, because they believed the guys telling them that Brexit would be good for them.
Yeah. What I want to know is, collectively are they known as “ignoramuses” or “ignorami?”
I’m much worse: as a skeptical solipsist I doubt there is an objective reality! After all, mainstream theory holds that every night we all create worlds that can not be distinguished from this one by any known test. I am about to retire from an electric company as a senior IT field technician with a half century of finding the roots of malfunctions, and when I have mentioned to my colleagues, “Whatever this world is, it is not what we think it is” I get enthusiastic agreement.
Sorry, that one was flunked long ago.
I have a nieghbor tht believes just that. He will argue that Anarctica is really the outer border and there is a dome over the earth to protect it. He also believes that the sun and planets revolve around the earth. The troubling part is, he has a degree in math.

Well, from where I stand (though right now I’m sitting), it does kinda look flat-ish.
I had to come here today just to mention that a few thousand people do not represent “a large portion” of our society.
The population of Ahnk-Morpork can’t be wrong.
The speed of enlightenment is slower than the speed of endarkenment
Well…there are currently about 7.7 Billion people on Earth. I doubt that a so-called ‘large portion’ of them could fill a high school gymnasium. As Wikipedia points out…even some of those who make the claim are not really serious…merely attention seekers.
Well, we tried.
Leftists are already doing just that
