College Professor versus Navy SEAL

Spotted on Pharyngula.  An amusing variation of the story that all of us have heard many times before.

I love this variation and you just *know* some poor uneducated bastard will be sure it's real.

It  wasn't nearly as good, or bad, as the "you just aborted Mozart" one.

I get crap like that in my email frequently, mostly from ignorant friends and relatives. The emails always ends with "do not delete, pass it on." Recently, I have hit the reply all button and supplied evidence showing the post is not true or at least questionable.

I don't know the history of the Navy Seals but I could bet they didn't exist during Einstein's youth. The term Semper Fi is The Marine Corp Motto. Navy Seals are not Marines.

I guess if you read it on the internet it must be true.

But if you do not forward it, "bad luck" or breast cancer will fall on you.  ;D

It's amusing because we can tell how wrong-headed it is, but frankly, we can do without this brand of "humor".  Because the kind of person who's deluded enough to take this kind of thing seriously is still qualified to vote, and it's a lot easier to understand something like this (perhaps not as patently ridiculous as this one was) than it is to understand the reasons why evolution is true, for example.

My MIL drops these nuggets of email wisdom on us at the dinner table. Sometimes we just groan, 'cause she's really old and sometimes we go off on her. Makes for pleasant mealtime fun. :P
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.

Email used to be the measure, but nowadays it's not Snopes-worthy unless it is repeated on Facebook.
