Satya Harvey:-

Did these scientists talk to the moon? Tell her what they were doing? Ask her permission? Show her respect?

Yeah, it’s funny. Some people sure do believe some wacky things, but there’s the harmless side and then there’s this side:-

A mother accused of starving her seven-year-old daughter to death had claimed the child was possessed by an evil spirit

Or this:-

David McCaffery writes about his daughter, Dana, who was four weeks old when she died. Too young to get vaccinated herself, she contracted whooping cough because vaccination rates in that part of Australia are too low to provide herd immunity. This poor little girl died in her father’s arms, and the blame rests squarely on the antivaccination movement. That’s not an anecdote, that’s data

Two sides of the same coin. Ignorance is dangerous. Willful ignorance is culpable. People need to stop living in la-la land, because your earth-mother, moon-goddess, gaia fairytale gives succour to the really harmful crap out there.
