Pat Robertson
I guess this doyen of lunacy could be loony of the week every week, but this week I got me some gloatin' to do.

Pat Robertson Yesterday: Mark My Words, The Lord Will Give Trump The Votes To Pass Trumpcare

Robertson said that he knew that the Lord was going to give Trump victory and that God is using the president to do great things. Theyre going to get it, he said. Theyre going to give it to the president. Mark my word: it will pass. They will get those extra votes. It will go through. Theyre going to work together to give us tremendous health care.

Nazi flat earthers at Daily Stormer.

quote:
Science is the acquisition of knowledge capable of being reproduced.

You cant reproduce Big Bang. Its not science.

With flat earth, there are multiple lines of evidence that point in the same direction.

Many globe claims have been power of suggestion, reliance on authority, and black box frauds. As a thesis, flat earth is stronger in 2017 than 2007.

Newtons Third Law prohibits acceleration in space. You need a medium to move: floor, water, atmosphere. Space is not a medium. This would explain why NASA had to lie and fake a moon mission.


ETA the link does not go to Daily Stormer.

Oh fear not, even Jones' staunchest supporters take his far-out stuff with a big chunk of salt.

Like the kid that shot up a pizza place ...

What you don't see is that ALL of his stuff is bunk bogus BS bollocks, and it only exists because gullible crazy people feed and fuel it.

Believing one idiotic thing makes you more gullible to believe the next ... if you don't do fact checks (99% of the population, as evidenced on the crud on Facebook and on what comes up on google/bing/duckduckgo etc searches ...)

People get the government they deserve, so when they are stupid and gullible and ignorant, that is what you get for politicians. People that should be laughed at running government ...

In other words you know full well that he is hopelessly unreliable as a source, but choose to believe even the craziest accusation when they fit your prejudices. That is not reassuring.

Well, I'm not sure I see that either. The problem with the rightwing nutosphere is they mix up their blatant nuttery with real, somewhat accurate news. That's what makes it difficult to distinguish between nuttery and real information, especially if you're a nut. As PaulK implies, this is why you need to avoid "news" from unreliable sites.

But you might be right, too; maybe Jones really is 100% mixed nuts.
