    I had to LOL when I saw this happening to this pompous ass.

    BTW, Steak-umms got us through some pretty tough times stationed in Turkey back in the 80's. The commissary would only get frozen meat from Germany, or someplace, that looked like that discovery way back in freezer...that dark brown, freezer-bitten thing you forgot about a year ago.

    Scientists overwhelmingly once agreed that the world was flat and many centuries later, some idiots still believe them. Scientists once thought the most fundamental building block of matter was a particle called the atom. Now we know that the atom is made of many smaller pieces, known as subatomic particles. Every atom contains a central core called the nucleus, made of particles called protons and neutrons. Further, we now know there are even smaller subatomic particles called quarks, leptons, muons, bosons, neutrinos and singularities. Yet I guarantee you that some fools still believe the atom is the smallest particle, when it's really their brains.

    It's pretty embarrassing that a sliced meat company had to remind a world renowned scientist about the very premise of science and it's processes. I know I'm sick and tired of hearing developmentally disabled leftists mimic "you must believe the science because it's immutable truth!". Bullcrap.

    Well, I used to enjoy Steak-Umm but no longer

    When the makers of the foods or entertainers or any businesses I use engage in political rhetoric, its time to find a non politically engaged source to do business with.

    There are a some Christian Apologists that I read or listen to that like to point out that "science is what it is, but scientists are prone to be biased in their proclamations about scientific things."

    Kind of like Tyson. In that article linked at the Huffpo, he makes this statement:

    "You don’t have to like gay marriage. Nobody will ever force you to gay-marry. But to create a law preventing fellow citizens from doing so is to force your personal truths on others. Political attempts to require that others share your personal truths are, in their limit, dictatorships."

    Is there really anything to a "personal truth?" Isn't it strange that while I might disagree with gay marriage and that a gay might disagree with a heterosexual marriage, that someone would refer to it as a truth? Isn't it just an opinion? Isn't that what some scientists get in early studies of nature or whatever? How many times has something been studied and proclaimed "truth" only to find later that it really wasn't "true?"
