People are often complaining about the 'anti-science' attitude so prevalent in the US, but let's look at some scientific 'facts' and see how they stand up against basic common sense or simple tests:
Spherical EarthObviously false. I set out walking in a straight line, for more than an hour, and I didn't return to where I started. Additionally, I have friends who have been to the so-called 'Southern Hemisphere' and they told me people walked on the ground, feet down, just like here.
Wave-particle dualityI don't even need to go into this. It's simply absurd. I mean, come on!
Consistency in the speed of lightAgain, WTF?
HeliocentricismI can bloody well see the Sun going around the Earth.
Atomic theoryYou're telling me I just stubbed my toe on a rock that's mostly empty space? Bull. Crap.
RelativityThings bend. Space is not a thing. It's where things are. And time is time.
Quantum MechanicsAtomic theory on crack. In Vegas.
Rocks and feathers falling at the same distance in a vacuumHello! One's heavier than the other!
It's no wonder science isn't trusted. They don't even try to come up with half-way plausible claims.
