Conservapedia seems to have achieved its founder’s original goals — it’s a universally recognized, all-encompassing dumpster and dispensary of ignorance, idiocy, insanity, and similar resources.
They are, as you probably know, a fountain of misinformation about evolution, but that’s old news and it’s not what got our attention this morning. We’d like you to observe their article on E=mc². Here’s the opening paragraph, which should be sufficient to get you interested:
E=mc² is a meaningless, almost nonsensical, statement that purports to relate all matter to light. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism), and numerous attempts to derive E=mc² in general from first principles have failed. Political pressure, however, has since made it impossible for anyone pursuing an academic career in science to even question the validity of this nonsensical equation. Simply put, E=mc² is liberal claptrap
So there you are, dear reader. The only thing we’ll say in closing is that you shouldn’t feel too smug because you’re of the opposite political persuasion. When you get to either ideology’s furthest fringe, the left is just as crazy as the right. And if you don’t know that about your own ideology, then you’re probably on the fringe.
