No matter how hard you try, you just can’t make up crap like this. No wonder we are often considered the intellectual laughing stock of the world.

Conservapedia founder and Eagle Forum University instructor Andy Schlafly — Phyllis Schlafly’s son — has found one more liberal plot: the theory of relativity.
[…]
Why does Andy Schlafly hate the theory of relativity? We’re pretty sure it’s because he’s decided it doesn’t square with the Bible. In the entry, “Counterexamples to Relativity,” the authors (including Schlafly) write:

The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world.

To what does that reference lead? Why, a note by Schlafly:

See, e.g., historian Paul Johnson’s book about the 20th century, and the article written by liberal law professor Laurence Tribe as allegedly assisted by Barack Obama. Virtually no one who is taught and believes relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold

In other words, reading a theory about physics is correlated to a decrease in people’s interest in reading the Bible, which means that it causes people to stop reading the Bible.

    Hey! ECA, Einstein was born in 1879, His theory of Relativity was first published in 1905. Get your facts straight. Go ahead…. look it up!

  2. Wanderingskeptic says:

    Whoops, My mistake…. Einstein was born in 1875. That’s right, Einstein changed the world when he was 21…

  3. Wanderingatheist says:

    Einstein then published his Theory of ‘General Relativity’, the theory of Gravity in 1915, and it’s been proven experimentaly many, many times.

  4. Wanderingskeptic says:

    Never revise what you know is true. Einstein was born in 1879 not 1875! He published his original Theory of Relativity when he was 25… not 21. I must have been to sleepy to be doing that much thinking late last night……….. ;-(

  5. Zarathustra says:

    CHRISTIANS………….. Why don’t you all jump off TALL BUILDINGS….. & Test EINSTEIN’S explanation of Gravity!!!!

    Hate to rain on this party…
    But Galileo already realized that motion is relative and its particular mathematical description depends on the observer’s frame of reference. That was the origin of “relativity”. Einstein’s (and ok Lorentz, Poincare and others…) version happens to try to explain the additional observation that the speed of light is the same for all observers in inertial frames.

  7. Zarathustra says:

    The “LOAD” put chrixstains on the planet so we’d all have someone to laugh at!

  8. Sum Young Guy says:

    # 37 Zarathustra said, CHRISTIANS………….. Why don’t you all jump off TALL BUILDINGS….. & Test EINSTEIN’S explanation of Gravity!!!!

    ZARATHUSTRA: You are “Relatively” hateful. Must be your Zoroastrian religion. Seems to have made you “relatively” stupid.
