‘I Don’t Believe In Science,’ Says Flat-Earther Set To Launch Himself In Own Rocket

What an idiot. Perhaps he doesn’t believe in gravity either. I’m betting he backs out.

UPDATE: Looks like he’s getting ready to back out…

A flat-Earther’s plan to launch himself in a homemade rocket just hit a speed bump

I must admit, I am a bit confused by this whole “flat-earth” thing. How can you disbelieve something that is so easy to prove? Science isn’t a belief system. It’s all evidence based. Belief never enters into it. It doesn’t need to because it’s about proof.

No

Yikes, These hair-raising moments are the first video footage from renowned rock climber Alex Honnold’s ascent of the 3,000-foot wall of El Capitan—without a rope. On June 3rd, Honnold became the first person ever to free solo climb this famous rock face at Yosemite National Park, California.

Babylon 5 is Free to Stream!

My favorite science fiction TV show is now free to view on the internet. www.go90.com is a website that streams older TV shows and they have the entire run of Babylon 5 online now. This does not seem to include the half dozen TV movies, but that’s okay. The show holds up remarkably well for a 20 year-old show and is worth watching for the amazing performances by Peter Jurasik as Londo and Andreas Katsulas as G’Kar, not to mention the great writting of J. Michael Straczynski.
