The Cult of Fools

Bizarre Claim: Unicorns and Flying Fire-Breathing Dragons are real

The title is not a parody, somebody is seriously making that claim under the banner of “science”. To be clear, the use of that word is not the scientific data-driven sciency stuff that you will find in credible science journals, but instead is “science” as taught by Answers In Genesis.





Most humans, regardless of their beliefs or lack of any, are generally decent and honourable. Some abandon all that, toss empathy, integrity, and honesty under the bus and so they end up joining the Cult of Fools. It is almost impossible to distinguish satire from actual claims.
