|Barry really has no IDEA of the irony? Club me like a baby seal!|
And why the jab at GR? Did he ban discussion of that too?
Well, as Andrew Schlafly’s Conservapedia, ("The Trustworthy Encyclopedia") notes, "The theory of relativity has been repeatedly contradicted by experiments, such as precise measurements of the advance of the perihelion of Mercury that show a shift greater than predicted by Relativity, well beyond the margin of error. Criticism of the theory, however, caused physicist Robert Dicke to be denied the Nobel Prize, and it is unlikely tenure or a Ph.D would be awarded to any critic of the theory."
So you see, it's all part of The Conspiracy to Defeat Jesus Christ and Pollute Our Precious Bodily Fluids as General Jack D. Ripper clearly explained in Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Fearing The Bomb and Put My Faith in Jesus.
I think Barry's on to something.
Or on something.
