Re: Just the usual ignorance on display
Dave B77 mentioned "YEC (Young Earth Creationist)"
See also 'Last Thursdayism', which is exactly the same thing with an arbitrarily shorter time scale.
It used to be said that: 'Nothing can be proven over the Internet, and anything can be proven over the Internet, and both of these statements are simultaneously true and false.' We have now graduated to the point where these rules are just as true (and just as false) in the real world too.
Forget Drake's (Equation) nuclear annihilation fears, or concerns about some future Woody Allen's endlessly distracting Orgasmitron. This present wave of supposedly irrefutable irrational thinking will doom us. The Universe will never 'know itself'. The meat machines are frickin insane.
