The Stupidest Thing You've Ever Heard

After careful consideration, have to go with Young Earth Creationism.

That people like George Bush and The Queen are space alien lizards wearing masks to deceive humanity, and they have been the secret rulers of our world for thousands of years. Pretty coincidental how these space reptile hybrids managed to predict who would become rulers of countries hundreds if not thousands of years in advance, and managed to avoid the basic problem that once you go back enough generations we (or all people originating from a similar region) would all have to have a space reptile ancestor.

THIS GUY HAS FOLLOWERS, PEOPLE.

Yeah he might have followers, but they're not really a threat since anyone who takes him seriously HAS to be mentally incapacitated in one form or another.

OT: Personally I'd have to go with the Time Cube Theory, because despite all the times it's popped up on websites/forums I still can't tell what the FUCK the guy is trying to say/prove.

I remember one of the friends of my sister said: "I like Jak and Daxter more than [Legend of Mana], because it's anime."

What... the crap?

My dad once accused me of being bulimic.

For reference, at the time he made this claim, I was super fucking sick; so he was correct in the claim that I was constantly throwing up, at least.

He has since denied he ever said such a thing.

If you don't mind my asking, why is it the stupidest thing you've ever heard?

Well, because it is often trumpeted as the end all, be all solution for where life came from, when it is actually laughably flimsy. I'm a very "prove it" sort of guy, and so far I haven't seen any proof that evolution is even possible. Natural selection, yes. Evolution? No.

I guess I should reform my statement a bit: The theory, as presented by Charles Darwin, while somewhat ridiculous, has merit, as a theory and a theory alone. The way it is presented, at least around here, as the Holy Grail of Science makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. That slavish devotion to a theory that hasn't even been proven as of yet tops every stupid thing I've ever heard from a religious fanatic, if only because religion, in and of itself, attracts fanaticism and fervor. It is built on the principle of believing the unbelievable. Science is supposed to be above that, but that sadly ceased being the case some time ago.

"it is often trumpeted as the end all, be all solution for where life came from" The Theory of Evolution doesn't address where life came from, it addresses the diversity of existing life. To misunderstand that is to demonstrate an utter ignorance of both the theory & of basic biology itself. 'Abiogenesis' is the name given to the hypothesis presented by Dr. Szostak (Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School & Distinguished Investigator in the Department of Molecular Biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital), who has successfully demonstrated a process where self-catalysing enzymes create replicating hydrocarbon polymer vesicles undergoing mutation.

"[...] has merit, as a theory and a theory alone." this demonstrates what can only be considered a tragic ignorance of the simplest scientific terminology. In a scientific context a 'theory' is a systematic and formalized expression of all previous observations, and is predictive, logical, and testable. In common use the word 'theory' actually refers to a hypothesis, a supposition made on the basis of limited evidence. Other theories are the Theory of Gravity, of Electro Magnetism, Copernican Theory (sun at the centre of the solar system), Atomic Theory, Germ Theory, Genetic Theory, Kinetic Theory, etc.

Evolution is documented in existing species from Italian wall lizards in Pod Mrcaru over the last few decades, the mosquito during the Blitz, to the peppered moth in England during the Industrial Revolution, & to numerous bacterial strains (e.g. Sphingomonas) around the world. Then there are transitional fossils like Proterogyrinus, as well as a wealth of genetic corroboration such as human Ch2 corresponding (even down to the join/splice) to Chs12 & 13 in chimps.
There is no peer-reviewed paper which contradicts Evolution.

The above-quoted text demonstrating ignorance of utterly basic science is my candidate for stupidest thing I've read or heard this week, possibly this month.

This made my morning. Thank you.

"Damn Communists need to keep their cats on a leash!" My grandfather said this as he drove up the road, almost hitting a cat.

I had no idea that the Cold War was all over the need for the Communists to put leashes on their cats.

-sigh-

... my mother honestly believes scientists are covering up the exsistance of magic. >.>

She thinks they have proof and just dont want us to know. She also claims Richard Dawkins was shown proof of reincarnation on TV once.

M-theory: A theory based off a theory. Regardless if years from now its proven right its foundation is still baseless.

A man went into GAME and went up to the counter and told an employee that his 360 was broken because he had given it a hard kick and he was wondering why Microsoft haven't fixed this problem yet.

Last year, at the end of high school, I had short discussion with a friend about movies.

Me: "Alright. The summer holiday is right around the corner and what better way to open it then to have a movie marathon!"

Friend: "Hehe. Wish I could join. What movie-marathin will it be?"

Me: " LotR-marathon. Borrowed the DVD-collection from a friend. Havenīt seen any of them. I just hope they are overrated :-)"

- Suddenly, the class-douche suddenly joined the discussion. -

Douche: "You havenīt seen any of the LotR-movies ? What the hell is wrong with you?"

Me "There is nothing wrong with me, you idiot!"

People who blame you for not having seen a certain movie are idiots (moral of the story)

I've heard some REALLY stupid shit in my life, but this takes the cake:

"Opium isn't a drug." - some idiot

No context needed.

Pretty much anything a republican has ever said, specifically Santorum. I don't know how you US guys deal with it. I mean, Santorum is still considered a VIABLE CANDIDATE. How? Why? Who's supporting that lunatic?!

Blind Sight:

You think that's bad, you should see how the Canadian federal system is designed, it's just if not more broken then America's.

The thing is, we didn't NEED a better system until recently because we had half-decent people most of the time.

But now that Harper is !@#$ing our country up, we're REALLY starting to see the flaws. Especially the lack of a way to impeach the PM. I really think the system needs fixing.

I honestly don't know if Canada can survive another 3 years under this nutcase. If Quebec wants to separate on ideological grounds instead of language grounds, I think I might be VEEEERRY tempted to go for it.

"...well, objectively it's a great game..."
Or any permutation of.

"Opium isn't a drug"
The kid in question does drugs.

I find your avatar to be hilariously appropriate for this thread.

That's an arguable point, I'm not a fan of Harper myself either, but considering that the liberal era in the 90s was filled with rampant corruption throughout the federal cabinet and numerous departments it's sort of a 'pick your poison' debate. I mean, at least in the 90s we were running a surplus, even if some liberals were funneling money away haha.

I argue that we've always needed a better system, Canadians unfortunately have a tradition of not really caring how the government is run, so long as it's moderately functional. There was a lot of blatant nepotism in Canadian bureaucracies until the 1950s (although it's still not that uncommon in my experience), Borden won an election by fraud, etc. but we never talk about these issues.

Another thing that I find really stupid is that Wild Red Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin d and calcium but the skinless and boneless salmon has much less vitamin d and almost no calcium and yet it costs more to buy the less nutritious one which is just retarded.

I once saw someone on a forum say that he didn't play WoW because it was "too anime" for his tastes. And the same person seemed to have a thing for obnoxiously ending every single sentence he typed with an exclamation mark. Yeah.

Also, sort of related, my mum once pretended to think that spaghetti grew on trees while at a restaurant in Venice (coolness points to those who know what it's a reference to), and she said that just as the waitress picked up our plates... she fought that she was crazy. =P

The entire mass effect 3 ending fiasco, i loved the ending, im glad bioware are releasing dlc which has more closure in it but they arnt actually changing the ending, just adding a few scenes on and an epilouge because people that thought they could actually get bioware to fully change the ending to a game they spent countless hours working on are just special.

God did it.

Douk:
Since I'm so edgy and hip I'm going to have to go with religion.

I can't accept people for who they are so I'll use this irrelevant thread to explain my world views in a smart sarcastic comment.

Or... they could just think religion is the stupidest thing he's ever heard?

Because well... it is pretty damn stupid.

If it wasn't for my horse, I wouldn't have spent that year in college.

You may or may not appreciate me telling you this, but I have actually thought of a way that could make sense. Growing up in texas as I do, I went to college here. One thing that many colleges in Texas has is scholarships for rodeo atheletes, people who do barrel races and calf roping. But, usually, you have to have your own horse to do these events. So, no horse, no rodeo, no scholarship, no college.

Of course I have no idea if this was even remotely the case as I was not present with Mr. Black at the time, but...yeah...

Anyways, OT:

This and always this:

Well one thing recently. I was watching one of those top 20 music video shows, which have been horrible ever since 2000. They were about to play the new Train song (they did Drops of Jupiter and Hey Soul Sister) and one of the presenters claimed that he was a 'modern day Shakespeare'. Yeah, no. that is just a completely stupid thing to say.

Sleekgiant:
There was this thread were the OP basically stated anyone who didn't know what his avatar meant was stupid, it was really not the brightest thing to do.

well semi fitting your getting quoted cause your avatar is adorable then isn't it

OT:

Michel Bay is Directing ...... anything hurts my head every time.

more sierusly though

the 'Ancient Astronaut' theory's in general, while they at time sound credible, they all sound stupid as hell. I'd rather believe that the gods of old where SUPERNATURAL rather then just using super advanced tech. kinda takes a lot of the 'cool' away from guys like Odin and Zeus

In my english class, one preticularly dense girl (she asked me if I listened to Devil music once) asked the teacher if English was a language.

Another one that comes to mind was a picture the little kid who lives next door posted on facebook. It showed a sign that said "With Regan we had Bob Hope and Johny Cash, Now with Obama we have neither Hope or Cash." I was quick to point out that both Hope and Cash--just like our economy--died while Bush was president.

Anything religious people say is fucking hilariously stupid XD

This.
I hate to flame, but honestly, seeing as religion is one of the few places left where people are not only allowed to be, but are encouraged to be incredibly fucking stupid, lie through their teeth, knowing pull shit reasoning from their ass and tick off a list of logical fallacy, it's no wonder religion is a goldmind for dumbfuckery.
My favorite thing is when people say that their god never lies. If they have a bible on them, I open it to the very fucking begining and show them that the first horrible evil act of satan is to point out that god lied. lulz ensue.

You're forgetting about Faux News.

Teacher: You will upload your mock interview videos to youtube and post a link on the class discussion board.

Student: I'm not doing that....

Teacher: Why not?

Student: Because like....ew!

Teacher: YOU'RE HIRED!

Screamarie:

This and always this:

I just vomited a little. This is quite easily the dumbest article I have ever read; not so much because of grammar errors (I make plenty), but the content.

Glad to see people finally stopped derailing this thread with Evolution and fucking Math problems.

OT: Not the stupidest, but a recent one. I tried to encourage a mate to join the gym I got to (He's gotten really out of shape and does nothing all day) and he said this.

"The only reason you're at the gym is so you can get big and people will be scared of you."

You know, it's not like I want to improve my physical health or anything...

religion. all religion.

"I hate religion but I love Jesus!"


I have to put up with a whole classroom full of these people at school... Oh, and they absolutely can't seem to understand the Loving Jesus =/= Non-Religious, they're still Christians, and trying to pass of as non-religious. And some of them go to Mormon churches.

If there has ever been a time where I've contemplated a school shooting, that moment was it.

At a Chinese restaurant with my girlfriend and her Mom a few weeks ago and in the booth behind me there are three teenage girls. They're placing their orders and one of them says;

"Uhm, which one is the fried rice? Is that the white kind?"

The three of us stopped talking about...whatever the Hell we were talking about...and shared a face-palm.
