\"Real\" in what conceivable way?

Didn't we already have this one? Or is it from a thread that was previously visited by other FSTDT'ers?
Anyway, if the moon sized object of gold (which is transparant according to dad) is \"on top of the Earth\", why have we failed to detect it so far? And what use would it be to make such a huge construction of gold? The only good quality of gold is that it is visually pleasing, and the value comes from it's relative rarity on Earh. So making it transparent and adding a huge quantity of it makes it no better than glass.
Would you like living in a glass world?

NotMe: Gold is also an excellent conductor, and it doesn't rust. Unfortunately, it isn't bery strong.

It's a ball of stupid about the size of the moon....
That is real bizarre 101.

\"That is real science 101.\"
Oh, and Hadanelith, while gold does make a good conductor, it's only really valuable and trusted as currency because it's hard to get hold of and hence impossible to forge, respectively.
If a moon-sized amount of the fucking stuff became available, without the need to dig it out of crushing depths of rock and expend vast amounts of energy isolating it in pure amounts, gold would rapidly become as cheap as dirt.

Dad used to make me laugh. But now… For a person to so utterly throw himself into something to the point that he spouts the most incredible idiocy and expects others to just accept it as some kind of scientific fact is truly pitiable. This is just sad.

Of course real science has plenty of evidence to back up it's claims. Got any? No? Didn't think so. Run along and pray to your invisible sky daddy.

Sadly, this doesn't even qualify for the top 10 of bizarre things 'dad' believes.

We haven't nominated anything for \"Bizarre Creationist Assertion of the Month\" yet, and I think this probably deserves it.

\"No, it is on top of earth, and is about the size of the moon. An interesting fact is that this moon sized object of gold will land on earth.\"
Now that would be an interesting fact, except that it is NOT a FACT.
\"If a moon tried it now,\"
The moon is inanimate, and, therefore, does not \"try\" anything.
\"gravity would exist,\"
Excuse me, but gravity DOES exist.
\"and we would be wiped out good and proper.\"
Exactly what would be \"good\" and/or \"proper\" about the human race being wiped out?
\"Heavens, imagine the tides even?!\"
\"That means that gravity, as we know it, just will not apply.\"
If you have to eliminate gravity on earth to make your scenario work, you should probably rethink your scenario.
\"Neither of course will decay.\"
Ditto for decay.
\"Our present state of the universe, and laws of physics will be no more. That is real science 101.\"
No, that's a wild, un-supported, junk story you pulled out of your ass. It has nothing to do with science.

This was posted before. Although the stupid here is so concentrated it needs to be diluted by multiple submissions.

Yup, the Fundy definition of real science... Make shit up!

Isn't this a repeat? Or is dad just repeating himself?

This is a repost, guys. Still extremely weird, but a repost.

I think that in honor of BigChrisFilm, we should have a \"mooned to death\" award.

Well, if the Laws of Physics are no more, everything will cease to exist.

His chronology and tenses've gone all funny (I'm not even attempting to analyse the logic, my eyes are bleeding). It will land, it can't do it now though, but gravity won't exist? Do moon's try anything? At the risk of bursting his fragile little logic-bubble, gravity already exists, without any attempts at terrestrial landing by gold moons.
No...hang on...heaven is an object of gold? Christ, I hope it's hollow.

Do you teach this to your children?
Because this is absolute bull.

Did you make that up yourself, or did your pastor tell you that?
