      Sums up the entirety of Facebook really…

    Given the vast size of the Earth, not to say the Sun, common sense would dictate the margin of error would be larger than ten feet.

    But then, when was sense really common?

    Fact: If that update were 10% more stupid, it would kill you. If it were 10% less stupid, it would faintly nauseate you. God only wants it to make you upchuck yourself into dehydration…amazing!

    On the upside: seventeen “Likes” for reality-based guy, and only two for spelling-impaired “don’t ever tell me I’m wrong” lady.

    We especially don’t need facts since we have the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy:

    Article XII: We further deny that scientific hypotheses about earth history may properly be used to overturn the teaching of Scripture on creation and the flood.

      Daniel,

      I’ll give the writers of thtat statement props though. They carefully worded that statement.

      Notice they specifically used the word “hypotheses” instead of “theory”. Tricky,tricky…

    At least the majority of “Likes” went to the guy posting good information. Geez.

    Scott,
    Thanks for at least blurring out my face and name on this status update. It would be embarrassing if everyone knew that was me …

      Doh ….

    Wow. Just wow.

    Many millions of miles, ten feet… geez, you guys are such nit-pickers! What’s seven or eight orders of magnitude between friends?

    The important thing here is, she’s trying. Don’t hold her innumeracy–or total lack of cognitive ability, perhaps–against her. Would you ridicule the “special needs” kid at the playground who has to wear a football helmet everywhere he goes? I don’t think so.

    I don’t think so.

    Just smile and nod, and pray she doesn’t ever reproduce….

    True Fact: everyone who has every climbed to the second story of a building has frozen to death.

      Everyone who has climbed to the second story of a building *at midnight* has frozen to death. Everyone who has climbed to the second story of a building *at noon* has been burned alive.

      My God in Heaven, what sort of insane hell planet have you set us on?! It’s…amazing!

        Don’t forget about the Arctic Circle–flaming Gehenna for one month each summer, when the sun never sets; dead and frozen wasteland in winter with its thirty days of night… It’s why the Scandinavian Morlocks are constantly having to rebuild and repopulate.

    The height of a basketball hoop is 10 feet as well
