That’s Tantamount to Heresy

Not by my camera (image by Guillaume Preat)

He said my suggestion was asinine.

I asked him why.

He said it doesn’t conform to the accepted theory.

I said what if that theory is wrong?

No, he said, that is truly asinine.

But what about that body of evidence? Do you dismiss it?

Evidence, he snorted. A made-up load of sums.

Then you don’t accept that the Earth revolves around the Sun?

No. That is worse than asinine. That’s tantamount to heresy.

    As we all know, the Earth is a tetrahedron, else there would not be four corners of it. Each corner is a volcano. That is how the earth expands. Far from getting smaller, the Earth is getting bigger every day. Which means its mass is increasing. Which is why one’s weight increases over time.
