I was like what? I said we have pictures of the surfaces of other planets. We have photos taken from the orbit of planets billions of miles away.

He looks at me all incredulously and says, "Haven't you noticed how fake those pictures look? They look like a pixar movie."

Usually when he says stupid stuff I just try to ignore it but I don't truck with this bullshit about outer space, so I start pushing him to explain how he could possibly know what planets look like in real life. Then he pivots to, "How could all these countries work together to create the space station and all these satellites when we can't even solve our problems on Earth?" I was just like .....what..... So he elucidates, "No one can stop killing each other down here so how can you believe that all these countries could work together like this?"

and like I said I can take his nonsense proselytizing and theological musings, but I get touchy when it comes to science. So I said that it doesn't seem ridiculous at all to me, to which he acted totally astounded, like he's never met someone who believes in evolution before. I pointed out that we can watch single cell organisms mutate under a microscope, and the idea is that we are the product of the same thing but over billions of years. He just did this thing he does when he thinks something is ridiculous but can't think of a rebuttal where he goes, "HA!"

So then we worked in silence a bit more and he says, "I believe humans were created just like we are now with Adam and Eve, except our brains were less evolved. Even today our brains continue to develop." at which point it stopped even being fun for me to bait him because his ignorance is too fucking sad
You work with Belteshazzar?

Also, the comments on this video are similarly depressing to your coworkers comments. People don't understand false-colour imagery and are all like "haha fake and ghey lol"

yeah, I tried to explain that space photos are not usually taken in "real color" and he was like, "So they create the photos to interpret information to us we can't understand?"

some of those comments tho


another thing he said was that is was unlikely we could create probes that could survive on other planets because obviously we have no way to know what conditions on other planets are like

And yeah. He teaches at a high school and bragged about how 14 year old girls confide stuff in him. Pretty sure he was also one of the guys arguing in favour of lowering the age of consent.

Lots of people made creepy statements in that thread, though. Ol' tebbers confessed his attraction to a 15 year old or something.
