  1. Science has been cancelled because your parents prefer to believe in magic

    So now I’m going to turn water into wine, and then turn the wine into blood!

  2. Odd to see something like this posted here with no attribution or authorship information at all. It’s funny! Let us know who to thank.

  3. Well, at least the artist didn’t rely on the stereotype of the balding, bespectacled white guy scientist in a lab coat.

  4.  That is the first thing that popped into my head also! Where is carbon’s centrality in this putative organic molecule?

  5. I just don’t understand. Why cancel anything when it is perfectly compatible to simultaneously hold a belief in magic and science?

  6. You nailed it.  And why the test tubes?  Always with the damned test tubes.

    Capitalism creates accommodationism like this.  Any effort to appeal to the broadest audience possible will always result in a watered-down, PC product.
     

  7. Hey! Some of my best friends are balding, bespectacled white guys, and not ALL of them are scientists….

  8. “MAUCHCollapse
    I just don’t understand. Why cancel anything when it is perfectly compatible to simultaneously hold a belief in magic and science?”I think there was a typo in your post.  I’m sure you meant it’s perfectly compatible to simultaneously hold a belief in magic and *religion* — not “magic and science”.But I suppose I could be wrong in my interpretation of your post……

  9. I HATE this Disqus format….. you can’t properly edit anything!  What happened to the old style?

  10. It always takes time to adjust to new situations, but, thus far at any rate, I’m with you apropos of Disqus.

      

  11. I’ve really worked at studying this Xtian magic in science lessons, so why are the examiners putting crosses on all of my answers to science exam questions?

  12. There is a problem when a school cant teach children the science evolution,it would only lead to less intelligent children.these fairy tales have already caused so much problems in history.   

  13. I wrote the disqus people pointing them to my critique.  http://mindprod.com/jgloss/dis…  They said they would put a more powerful editor on the todo list.  Perhaps if they got an official request from RDF and lots of requests from users they would up the priority.  I suspect there are JavaScript editors that could be modified.

  14. If science were no longer taught in schools would scientists be forced to make churches of science and indoctrinate their pupils at a young age to keep up with religion? If so then would laboratories get tax breaks?

  15. The element at the centre of the molecule is christium.  It’s the only group 8 element that actually has a valency of 8 and is capable of bonding to carbon, oxygen and hydrogen to form the compound illustrated: carbon christanal.  This is a hallucinogen with side effects that include credulity, loss of discrimination, and the embracing of bizarre and improbable ideas.  Its long-suspected presence in communion wafers has recently been confirmed, and aerosol forms have been found in bible packaging materials and church pew polish.

    Moves are being made to introduce it as an additive to the cleaning fluids employed in public schools and lavatories.
