answer in small print below for people who give up

see this is the problem with posting a riddle for a bunch of smart people.

they actually have answers that work even though the answer is supposed to be "no".

there is supposed to be much more like it can destroy mountains and something about the sun that I forget.

look again at the words around the percentages. the harvard people said "no" and so did the kindergartners.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Oh, I don't know. If you sat on a pancake and farted, there's a pretty good chance it might turn brown. :moon:
