space.com – A flat-Earth enthusiast who claims not to believe in science plans to launch himself 1,800 feet (550 meters) above California’s Mojave Desert in a homemade steam rocket on Saturday (Nov. 25), the Associated Press reported.
“I don’t believe in science,” Hughes said, according to the AP. “I know about aerodynamics and fluid dynamics and how things move through the air, about the certain size of rocket nozzles, and thrust. But that’s not science, that’s just a formula. There’s no difference between science and science fiction.”
Nothing would make me happier than to see this guy’s rocket crash. It’s 2017. Even the Catholic church believes the world is round. I mean it only took them 350 years to get it right in 1992. We can’t have these flat-Earther nutjobs running around spreading lies. Before you know it, we’ll have Trump signing executive orders on the subject. Make Earth flat again!
And what’s this noise that he doesn’t believe in science? He understands aerodynamics, fluid dynamics and things moving through the air? Uhhh, that sounds like physics to me. Last time I checked, physics and how things move through air is science. Air. Our atmosphere. Not science? Moron. This is why we need natural selection to kill these people off.
Any flat-earther deserves the Dolores Umbridge “I must not tell lies” punishment that gets carved into their hands:
