THE SKEPTIC ARENA


This web site is dedicated to the eradication of irrational thinking.
Rationalists are those, whose thinking is strictly guided by the laws of logic.
Rationalists only accept as true, that which has been proven to be true,
through the application of the scientific method.

Cartoon published in 2003

Supply Side Jesus (this is the Jesus whom Republicans worship)

No less true today than it was when it was published almost 20 years ago.
In the interim, Republicans ignored this cartoon, and became even more greedy.
They can neither be shamed nor educated.
But we have no other option than to find a way
to free these people from their brainwashing
because the destruction they are bringing to civilization by enabling the Oligarchs ...

is beyond calculation

Albert Einstein, physicist



Einstein made a contribution (in the form of a quote)
that is every bit, if not more important, than his scientific discoveries.

"As long as there are sovereign nations possessing great power,
war is inevitable.
Only the creation of a world government
can prevent the impending self-destruction of mankind.
"

Sadly, we have failed to heed his warning ... and time is running out.
