  1. Hardnox says:

    The Flat Earth Society that believes in Man-Made Global Warming/Climate Change won’t either.

    The flat-earthers of yesteryear were victims of religion and rejected primitive science whereas today the flat-earthers believe their cause to be a religion.based on invented science.

    • Grouchy says:

      True that, Hardnox. And there are still “skeptics” who refuse to believe mankind has walked on the moon. Willful ignorance is the basest level of innate stupidity, I would say.

  2. Clyde says:

    True story there, GF. Another good one. Nox has it absolutely correct.

    • Grouchy says:

      Thanks, Clyde. I would say that Uncle Albert (Einstein) summed it up quite well:

      “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”

      ― Albert Einstein

    Asimov has pithy statements at times Good one Grouchy. True on many levels.

    • Grouchy says:

      G”Morning, Uriel,,, While Asimov was an avowed atheist, his understanding of Science and even of human nature was at times beyond reproach. I remember reading his works in grade school, albeit they were the “young adult” materials. Still, there was enough there to fire the imagination, and that is something today’s video games fall so far short of doing~!
      Thank You, Uriel, and have a great day.

    Astute observation. And it pertains to all the global warming supporters who find it hard to change the temperatures with words or actions…

    • Grouchy says:

      True that, Buck. Like Hardnox said above, they’re floating on invented science. Out west here, we would say they’re full of hot air and mountain scenery. And recently, there’s not been that much hot air~!

    Funny how reality has a way of prevailing despite the stubborn attempts of some to deny it.

    Good one, Grouchy!

    • Grouchy says:

      WOW~! That reply fits in every nook and cranny of life experience, CW. Good One, My Friend. And I Thank You for that. And it’s surprising to me, how many folks DO attempt to deny Reality, at each and every level of experience. “Pampered Preconceptions” are the rule and role of the day, for the most part,,, ,,, ,,,
