If you find a non-stupid creatard post that. That would be news.

Atheism is NOT a Religion. It's A Personal Relationship With Reality!

I find it scary, coming from an almost wholly liberal country, that she can effectively lobby her viewpoint into the Educational System. Absolutely terrifying.

Funny thing about Piltdown Man. The Oxford archaeologist/historian/scientist E. T. Hall, who debunked Piltdown Man as a fraud, was one of the scientists who tested the Shroud of Turin and dated it as a fraud from the 13th century.

I've had such a good time pointing this out to theists who bring up Piltdown Man. Snicker-snicker. Tongue

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It wasn't a creationist that discovered the Piltdown hoax. Drinking Beverage

Yes, I made that clear to him during the discussion; that the fraud was discovered by scientists. Didn't make any difference to him, nor did I expect it to.

For an example of how this influence can be far-reaching and long-lasting, look into the history behind why Russia was, for a long time, denying the science of genetics. Turns out that Stalin, who hated elites / academics, elevated common peasants to lead the various state science ministries. The guy in charge of biology was quite the Trumpian self-promoter and boasted of how his work on raising peas would so improve productivity that it would eliminate famine. His sole education was a correspondence degree.

This guy caught Stalin's ear and with Stalin's blessing began a campaign against genetics, in part because established science on genetics would expose him for the fraud that he was. For decades, to be for genetics was to be against the state. They eventually worked their way out of this, but it took a LONG time.

When I read that, my brain furnished the phrase "A Flock of Dildos". Laugh out load
