Louis Pasteur in Denial?
Louis Pasteur in Denial? A lie told by germ theory denialists
CLAIM: Louis Pasteur recanted his germ theory on his deathbed and said that Antoine Beauchamp was right. (1)
First, even if Pasteur recanted his germ theory on his deathbed, that does not invalidate all of the other evidence collected and verified by other scientists and researchers that validates his theory. To put it in perspective, if it was discovered that Galileo recanted his heliocentric theory on his deathbed, does that invalidate the legion of evidence from satellite imaging, professional and amateur astronomers, NASA, astronauts etc.? No. As frustrating as that sounds to the less than 1,000 people in America who still believe in the geocentric model of the universe, that's not how reality works.
Secondly, according to The Life of Pasteur by Rene Vallery-Radot, the following paragraph reveals Pasteur's final words on his deathbed(2) :
The last week in September he was no longer strong enough t
A Zionist Conspiracy Theory Claim, Debunked draftA Zionist Conspiracy Theory Claim, Debunked
Conspiracy theorist's claim: The Jews are in control of the world, as evidenced by the fact that most U.S. foreign aid goes to Israel.
One of the most common claims touted by the Zion Conspiracy theorists is that Israel gets the most foreign aid from the United States. It is true that Israel is the top receiver of U.S. Foreign aid which is about 2.4 billion dollars as of 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau(1), but they're not receiving 51% or greater of the pie chunk. In fact, there's a total of 45 billion dollars worth of foreign aid that is being distributed by the U.S across the world as of 2009. Israel receives 2.4 billion dollars worth, and that means it gets only about 5% of the pie. If Jews are really in control of the whole world, then why does Israel get so little of this aid? To put it in perspective, the national debt for 2009 was about 11.9 trillion (2). Therefore, it appears that foreign aid (military and economic aid) is b
The 435th day on the H.H.The only upside to regaining your sanity is that you no longer are haunted by visions of monstrous creatures; particularly bloated, bipedal green octopi with wings that are way too small to lift even a fraction of their own weight. The downside is the realization that the stuff growing around the pipes are not doing anything to satisfy my hunger. My only way of ridding myself of the temptations of that radioactive fungus is to write constantly in my journal, even though there may be nothing of interest happing on this mausoleum of a space tugboat; save for one incident a few hours ago involving none other than Baldric's very own bootlick, or rather boot eater in this case.
We found the big bugger chewing happily on my second man's unattended right boot, along with a sock stuffed in it, in his quarters, much to my disappointment that there wasn't someone else wearing it, when suddenly the beast let out a loud groan and started a coughing frenzy.
