Something To Ponder On A Holiday Afternoon

Think ya know shit; think scientists do? What if the plumber you hire shows up and tells ya- I know 5 per cent of everything there is to know about plumbing... Feeling confident about him are ya?

Astrophysicists know... 5% of everything they should know, 5 freaking percent of everything that's out there in the bloody unknown universe (let alone the multiverse), and they'll flat out laugh in your face if you so much as suggest that there's life out there (or closer, as the case may be) smarter than our own little monkey brained selves!

Granted that's five percent more than some goddamn Creationist knows, but that sure as shit aint gonna convince me they got a handle on things, particularly their own hubris.  (via boingboing)

Update: Amazing! You can now add a couple more percentage points-- thanks to a 22 yr old!!!
