    The thread titled "The King of Pseudoscience" actually got me wondering - who really IS the king of Pseudoscience? Michael Behe, a prominent voice in the ID movement? Bruce Chapman, president of the Discovery Institute? Sylvia Brown, who makes millions pretending to be a psychic?
    Who else comes to mind?

    The Pope and Bush both claim to talk to God. That's their choice but they also claim that god talks to them.

    He's a strong contender. How about Wiley Brooks, Breatharian, Spiritual Teacher, Inter-dimensional Traveler

    Breatharian Institute Of AmericaThe five magical 5th dimensional words.

    1. Jot Niranjan
    2. Omkar
    3. Rarankar
    4. Sohang
    5. Sat Nam

    Start meditating with these magic words for at least 30 minutes a day to begin with and increase your meditatiing time to 2 hours a day as soon as possible. Repeat them in the exact order that they are.

    Do the meditation excersize before drinking lots of diet coke in the 20 oz and 1 liter sizes in the plastic bottles only. Along with a double-quarter-pounder/with cheese meal at McDonald's only. Always meditate 30 mins to an hour before eating. Try to eat at least one meal a day for a while. Go back to my web site periodically to see if you can start to feel the magic after reading a few paragraphs.

    IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT DRINK WATER OF ANY KIND OR FROM ANY SOURCE AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY,DO NOT EAT ANY FRUITS OR VEGETABLES DOING THIS REGIME!!!

    May the forces be with you. You can call me and I will give you the correct pronunciations of the words from the 5D world.

    Wiley

    P.S. You can call me anytime. My 5D #: 602-781-2624 Call me after 9 PM Arizona time (PSt). If you have trouble the first time you call, meditate on the 5 magic words for a few minutes and try again.


    That's some serious crackpottery

    Today I happened to rediscover the first crank I ever encountered: Archimedes Plutonium. He is most famous for his "Atom Totality Theory":

    In late 1990, Plutonium claims to have had the realization of his Plutonium Atom Totality Theory, a theory he claimed to be the most important breakthrough in scientific history. According to this theory, the Universe is a giant plutonium atom, and the part of the universe we are able to observe from Earth, including Earth itself, is somewhere in its outer electron shells, the 5f6, and where galaxies are pieces of the last electron of 231Pu. As Mr. Plutonium calls it: where dots of the electron-dot-cloud are galaxies.
    I initially stumbled upon him while doing research on the p-adic numbers, the connection being that he advocates the use of decimal expansions that terminate in neither direction. Apparently such a system allows him to prove Fermat, Riemann, and Goldbach and to disprove Gödel. The second time, I found him referenced in the Wikipedia entry on Google bombing, where it is claimed that he is the origin of the term (albeit in the form "search engine bombing").
