To be fair, it was Waco, not exactly the pride of Texas.

People are going to completely ignore the part in the article where it says "select group of adults" and put Texas on blast for the next year.

Lucky for me I live in North Carolina where everyone is smar.... never mind.

So you really are going to hate on an entire state and subsequently their culture just because of their beliefs?

Christ you people are ignorant.

Aren't they the retarded ones for not believing that the moon reflects the sun, though?

I decided to actually look into the incident that led to the booing. He wasn't booed** just** for claiming that the sun reflects light off of the moon. What he claimed is that this fact shows that the Bible is inaccurate. He cited this verse from Genesis: “God made two great lights – the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night." and argued that since moon isn't technically it's own 'light,' that verse was false.

Setting aside religious beliefs for a second, that's a fairly technical and petty argument. And keep in mind, people attended this event expecting fun experiments they saw on TV, not for someone to berate them (unpersuasively) for their deeply-held religious beliefs. I probably wouldn't have booed, but I don't judge those who did.

tl;dr, yes, people in Texas understand where moonlight comes from, even the "small group" who booed.

You sir (and | use this aforementioned term in it's loosest form here) are a ******* idiot. "played with their religious beliefs" They booed him because he stated facts. Their religion says boo the truth and facts does it?
It's idiots like you, and they, that make me wish for a zombie Apocalypse.
So the sun is NOT reflected from the moon? Hmmmm,,, I see dumb people EVERYWHERE!
