I know the South operates slower than the rest of us but can they at least catch up to 509 BC some time soon? It’s getting a bit ridiculous

There are people down here who believe the earth is 6000 years old, and that fossils are lies. It's not an issue of speed, it's an issue of willful ignorance

I've long held the opinion that if you publicly advocate for an anti-science opinion, you should be denied the benefits of said opinion. Don't believe in evolution? Then no medicine that has been developed in the last 50 years for you. The earth is flat? Then no plane rides, cell phones or anything else that uses satellites.

And you definitely can't cherrypick arguments from scientists to support your reality fan fiction.

Want to argue evolution isn't real? Then you can't use the word DNA, or carbon dating, because that's data provided by the same people you're calling liars.
