    This and other relevant things remind me of what comedienne Susie Essmann said once: “People who believe in stupid shit shouldn’t get to use science, as in: you believe in creationism? You don’t get to use a cellphone or the internet or anything made in the 20th century.”

    So essentially that makes them Amish. And crazy.

    Actually, it’s “Science: It works even if you don’t belive it will.”

    Another example to put on the list would be that 200 mpg carburetor that was such a popular urban legend some years back. Oddly the story was the CAR manufacturers were suppressing it, not the oil companies.

    I have asked people that don’t “believe” in Radiometric dating if they believe nuclear power plants work? They both rely on radioactive decay after all.
