Quote Of The Day — June 9, 2015

.
Everything you’ve learned in school as “obvious” becomes less and less obvious as you begin to study the universe. For example, there are no solids in the universe. There’s not even a suggestion of a solid. There are no absolute continuums. There are no surfaces. There are no straight lines.”

R. Buckminster Fuller,  (July 12, 1895 — July 01, 1983)

    That statement would describe lefties perfectly. No solids, no absolutes, no surfaces, no straight lines. In other words, a total mess.

    • Grouchy says:

      Perfectly stated, Hardnox. All we need for proof of your statement is wrapped up in Hillary Rodham Clinton. AND as a bonus, the obomination in the White House.

  2. Uriel says:

    Lol. Too right Hardnox. Science at its best is an idea in an imperfect brain. Which ought to say something about its truth.

    • Grouchy says:

      We do have to admit, Uriel, that some come closer to the truth than most. But science as a field is not alone in this. The so-called “Soft Sciences” are rife with the imperfection. And there are territories I won’t dare to touch, in this discussion~!

    “Everything you learned in school”. Guess Fuller never got “Heather Has Two Mommies”, or was FORCED to watch Gore’s “fantansy”, “An Inconvenient Truth”, which, as we found out, is a total LIE.

    • Grouchy says:

      Maybe that’s why he said that after school, things we were taught as “Obvious” become less and less obvious as more knowledge and understanding are gained.

      The more that is learned, the more ignorant we realize we truly are!~!
