Nothing like a robust fundamentalist view to defy proven scientific facts.

Wonderfully misguided.

Imagine thinking you're right and 99% of the rest of the world is wrong, despite concrete evidence proving they are actually in the know.

No doubt he would be able to provide a long diatribe telling us that we are wrong, whilst refusing to tell us why we are wrong, and that it's our fault as non-believers to mock this poor deluded individual

I don't miss him. He's either genuinely one of the loopy ones or an expert level troll.

That being said, I do enjoy seeing different patient levels across the board. Someone flips on post 10, then another on 15, another on 18. It's fun to watch.

I think you are all being too harsh on this guy. His points about plane travel make perfect sense to me.*










*I thought about this for a while while staring out of my office window in downtown Atlantis, I was watching a group of elves betting on a fight between a unicorn and a griffin. Unfortunately the fight was not able to reach a conclusion because a spaghetti monster attacked the crowd. lalalalalala.....
