​Anti-Science

This song is by Tombstone da Deadman.

Open up your eyes
Can't you see the world is fallin'
(Here we go with this bullshit again)
Listen with your ears
Can't you hear the Lord is calling
(Motherfucker, that's just the wind)
And here's the real reason why superstitions begin
'Cause we looking for facts and you people playin' pretend
But sometimes I feel like this shit will just never end
And we gotta keep arguing over and over again

It's all nonsense, plus you just a little too overconfident
Especially when all you doing is talking shit

I'll bet the farm on this, that no apologist you think is prominent,
Believes enough to bet his fucking arm on it

It's all smoke and mirrors not impressive I don't hear ya
Mastered philosophy so now I guess I'm supposed to fear ya

But it's just double talk and judging by your word play
Your making up for lack of evidence so now you compensate

You're just not looking strong I think you need to step along
I hear you say you're seeking truth I think you got your method wrong

Labeled an atheist but I don't need a lexicon
To find a word that signifies I don't believe in leprechauns

Remove from the table the myths and the fables
And maybe your able to find something a little more stable

And I'll admit that I don't know one hundred percent
But I'll hardly be convinced with all the stories that you present
So get bent

Open up your eyes
Can't you see the world is fallin'
(Here we go with this bullshit again)
Listen with your ears
Can't you hear the Lord is calling
(Motherfucker, that's just the wind)
And here's the real reason why superstitions begin
'Cause we looking for facts and you people playing pretend
But sometimes I feel like this shit will just never end
And we gotta keep arguing over and over again

Powers of observations overflow with limitations
But as we advance we're collecting a lot of information

That's why sometimes I'm overwhelmed with feelings of frustration
To hear these organizations with these exaggerations

Claiming details of heavenly abodes
Instead of admitting and telling the truth is they don't know

And now they want to fuck with the schools that my kids go
To introduce their magic into the science, well fuck no

Twisting the data to say that their god was all involved
Claiming that we came from statues and never did evolve

Thinking that somehow the bible myths will backup science
They're arrogant and ignorant disturbingly defiant

Pushing the idea of a science-based conspiracy
And politicians supporting that bullshit officially

To get the votes of the all borderline illiterates
Our status slipping fast but they don't even give a shit

Open up your eyes
Can't you see the world is fallin'
(Here we go with this bullshit again)
Listen with your ears
Can't you hear the Lord is calling
(Motherfucker that's just the wind)
And here's the real reason why superstitions begin
'Cause we looking for facts and you people playing pretend
But sometimes I feel like this shit will just never end
And we gotta keep arguing over and over again

Sam Harris
This is constrained by our common sense in every other domain of discourse. Just take, for example, the people who think Elvis is still alive. OK. What's wrong with this claim? Why is this claim not vitiating our academic departments and corporations? I mean, I'll tell you why, and it's very simple. We have not passed laws against believing Elvis is still alive. It's just..., the problem is, whenever somebody seriously represents his belief that Elvis is still alive--in a conversation, on a first date, at a lecture, at a job interview--he immediately pays a price.
