-1 for faith in humanity!
This flyer is posted outside of my Chemistry class room at my College here in California!! The only edit is that in the "Warning Warning Warning" section the word "just" is inserted in-between "is" and "theory" So it reads, "Chemical Periodicity is just a theory"

Nobody really knows where all this shit came from. But I think I'd rather trust the dudes in lab coats who aren't demanding I get up early every Sunday to overdress and apologize for being human.

Why is it always Kansas? Weeping

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

The people over at Richard Dawkin's website seem to think it's satire. It's from at least 2007.

Please note the "Kansas: as dumb as you think" on the bottom right of the flyer. Also, this Christian forum comments on the satirical nature of re-discovery.org.

The url now connects to some Japanese blog.

The actual Discovery Institutes url is...

I read that too on Dawkins' website. Just up in this area people will tend to take it seriously and I think it is the wrong way to be going about these sorts of things.

It wouldn't surprise me if Christians think it's real. Poe's law exists for a reason.

As pointed out - that's a joke.

Makes for some good t-shirts, though. I've got this one.

Sadly, there are no doubt people for whom the reaction to this is 'good points', rather than the intended 'crazy people lol'.

Kansas is still the butt of the joke. For good reason, I suppose.
