Chaos Theory is a very important area of mathematics which can explain a lot of what we see in the real world. A pendulum with one mass is relatively easy to explain mathematically, and it behaves nicely. However if you put another mass in there, it behaves chaotically. Technically, this means that if you change the starting positions only slightly, the state of the system a short time later can change drastically. The weather is chaotic- a small error in measuring it today could be the difference between rain and no rain in a weeks days time. Watch these two pendulum systems quickly diverge, though they both start off with nearly the same settings. [more] [code]
The most perfect response. Mother of god…
Creation Museum in Kentucky.
I seriously have the urge to burn this place to the ground for their blatant lies.
Yes, little fucking velociraptors played with children. Yes, they were docile..
BEFORE THEY FUCKING MASSACRED ALL OF THE FUCKING CHILDREN.
This place is just fucking sickening.
This is like the fucking Flintstones and yes, all that’s missing is a big ol’ Yabba-dabba-do!
Fuck off Ken Ham, just fuck off.
…because I was raised that way. I don’t lean to the left because I listen to others and blindly ape their opinions.
I am a liberal and leftist because I have objectively evaluated the world. I have looked at scientific studies and evaluated their results. From these results, and from my own standards of “fairness” and “equality”, I have formed my own opinions.
These opinions happen to be the ones that people have classified as liberal, and left leaning. So be it. I am still what I am because of reason, not because of ideology.
‘An Indiana Senate committee on Wednesday endorsed teaching creationism in public schools, despite pleas from scientists and religious leaders to keep religion out of science classrooms.’ (To read the story, click image or here; Found at Religious Douchebags)
Even religious leaders wanted this out. Fucking dammit America, this is why young kids lose interest in being scientists. Misleading them with false information instead of teaching them scientific fact.
Look, if you want to teach this creationism bullshit, then save it for a fucking philosophy or religious class. Do not bring that shit into a science classroom. Because science is a mean bitch* with a very large strap on that doesn’t play.
I hate when people try to push this shit into classrooms and onto children. A good example would be with Answers in Genesis. Those motherfuckers are lying and scamming these children into horrid thinking and this has to stop.
*Excuse the language for all the people that take offense for just about anything.
Zeus is a hell of a lot cooler though.
