Wow. As far as brain-dead stupid goes, this one just takes the cake. It would seem that at least one conservative, Andy Schlafly, founder of Conservapedia, is convinced that the theory of relativity is actually a liberal plot to get people to stop reading the Bible.
In the entry, "Counterexamples to Relativity," the authors (including Schlafly) write:
“The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world.”
Schafly follows that up in the reference section with this nugget — “Virtually no one who is taught and believes relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold.”
With all due respect to my thinking, intelligent conservative friends, this guy straight up takes the cake in wing-nut crazy. Look, if you have a disagreement with Einstein’s theory — cool, but don’t try and blanket it as some liberal plot to get people to stop reading the Bible.
There, I said it.
