Faith vs. Sight

Faith and sight are opposites, like light and darkness, good and evil. When you have one you don't need the other, and vice versa. We also use them as concepts in a unified theory of everything.

Centrifugal Force

Measurements are what they are. The gravity of the Earth is very slightly weaker at the equator than it is at the poles. This happens to be because the Earth isn't perfectly spherical and bulges at the equator.

Math

The popular science paradigm (SciPop) begins to break down when you start doing math. Ironic isn't it. Math is regarded as the strength of SciPop, the reason why the faith crowd looks so stupid in comparison.

Heliocentric #EpicFail

How do you rationalize an event where it looked like the sun and moon stopped moving? You could say that the Earth stopped rotating, but the sun and moon maintained their relative position with each other.

Empirical Parrots

Scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) frequently tout the importance of empirical evidence. They squawk the phrase "empirical evidence" like parrots squawking "pieces of eight, pieces of eight".Scientifically illiterate science worshipers (SISWs) frequently tout the importance of empirical evidence.
