Science and Nonsense

Tom drew my attention to a parody news story in the Onion about the building of a giant pyramid in California as a burial chamber for our very own Sun God, Ronald Reagan.

Not mentioned in the story are the Royal Astrologers, who should also be interred with the ex-Prez, to advise him in the next world as they did in this one.

Jimmy Carter lacked the Great Communicator's political skills, but at least he knew the difference between science and superstition.

And by the way, thanks, Jimmy, for speaking out recently against removing the word "evolution" from Georgia's science curriculum.
