Oh No! The Continent Is Sinking!

Back in 1974, a humor magazine for scientists - The Journal of Irreproducible Results - carried a delightful story called "National Geographic, the Doomsday Machine."* In it, author George H. Kaub asserts: "This continent is in the gravest danger of following legendary Atlantis to the bottom of the sea. No natural disaster, no overpowering compounding of pollutions or cataclysmic nuclear war will cause the end. Instead, a seemingly innocent monster created by man, nurtured by man, however as yet unheeded by man, will doom this continent to the watery grave of oblivion."

What is this "monster" he is talking about? The millions of back issues of National Geographic magazine that subscribers never throw away! Since each issue of National Geographic weighs around two pounds, the author contends that the continent will someday sink under the weight of all that paper! He concludes with this dire warning: "PUBLICATION AND DISTRIBUTION OF THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE MUST BE IMMEDIATELY STOPPED AT ALL COSTS!"

While the article is genuinely funny, we're not laughing at some of the equally ridiculous ideas that many scientists really do believe in - like man-made global warming, alternate universes, and especially neo-Darwinian evolution. These so-called "scientific ideas" are absolutely preposterous, having no foundation in scientific fact.

Here at Creation Moments, we wonder when the science establishment will wake up to reality and realize that much of the world is laughing - not at articles in The Journal of Irreproducible Results - but at them!
