What the heck? What have they been smoking?
Seriously, I don’t understand this. What do they mean, just a theory? They aren’t talking about “time” in a cosmological sense because otherwise they wouldn’t be going back to 1899. Are they saying that none of the events of the year occurred? That we were all in a time warp? Was it a kind of Voyager/Year from Hell type deal? I’m confused.
Is this a Kansas thing?
It’s a satire, using the same logic used to dismiss evolution to dismiss the 20th century. It’s just a theory, you know. We can’t PROVE it. So yes, it is a Kansas thing.
Okay. Now I feel silly.
