The theory of relativity is a liberal conspiracy

Conservatives see liberal conspiracies in just about anything but they have reached new heights of absurdity. Andy Schlafly, son of Phyllis Schlafly the iconic anti-feminist, postulates this in Conservapedia, the on-line encyclopedia for conservative thought. The younger Schlafly writes,

The theory of relativity is a mathematical system that allows no exceptions. It is heavily promoted by liberals who like its encouragement of relativism and its tendency to mislead people in how they view the world

Does this imply that multiplication tables, also a mathematical absolute are thus also a liberal plot. Schlafly goes on to claim that almost no-one who believes in the theory of relativity reads the Bible.

historian Paul Johnson's book about the 20th century, and the article written by liberal law professor Laurence Tribe as allegedly assisted by Barack Obama. Virtually no one who is taught and believes relativity continues to read the Bible, a book that outsells New York Times bestsellers by a hundred-fold

Obama might be involved in this abomination. It must be a conspiracy then. He goes on to say that events in the Bible such as Jesus turning water into wine instantly are proof that the theory of relativity is wrong. This is described as 'action-at-a-distance' by Jesus according to John 4:46-54. For the layman this claims that Jesus had the ability to cause something to happen instantaneously in another location (i.e., faster than the speed of light), negating Einstein's theory.

Next up: The law of Gravity is a Socialist plot because Socialism implies everything has to be equal. I am sure the Bible can explain this conspiracy as well.

Such foolishness beggars comment, so I'm unsurprised by the lack of input on this little wacko blognugget thus far. What on earth does Right-Wing-Nutterville have against brains? or science? or facts?
