I was going to argue on behalf of Science, but then I looked at the examples on the shirt and saw Pluto.

I miss Pluto

Reminds me of Thanks Obama.

And yeah, with Pluto, my brain freaks out every time I watch a Discovery Channel documentary about space that says "8" planets.

For the record, we still have two more years until 2015 when Back to the Future predicted we would have flying cars.

Science still has a chance to pull this one out and call victory.

Still holding out hope for a robot butler (for better on the fly jetpack refueling), but a kevlar51 shirt version might do as a temporary morale boost. No flying cars though, that one hurts. George Jetson seems like such a stand up guy.

Why can't Science disprove stuff that isn't cool, like The Kardashians Career?

And the fact is, every time science falls short of developing a new technology, it's because the funding to make it happen was taken away by government, either by the administration or Congress. There's money to send them all over the world on junkets, but science budgets are cut to the bone at every turn.

That shirt is in error in the state of Illinois. By an act of the Illinois Legislature, Pluto is still a planet.

I don't know.

Every thing on that shirt i'm very glad we disproved and there are very good reasons that they were

Still a planet here in New Mexico too, where Clyde Tombaugh was a Professor of Astronomy at NMSU.

I think Lightspeed and Teleportation are stretches. The jury's still out on those two...they might still be possible. Let's put man-made Global Warming in there instead. Consensus on correlation is not enough.

Supposedly "teleportation" is still possible in the future. A molecular copy of you would be constructed at the destination, but it wouldn't really be you, as it wouldn't be the exact same molecules.

So when you are broken down to be "teleported" you would be pretty much getting murdered, allowing for a clone to assume your identity.

Thanks science.

Normally I'd rush to the defense of science because science is awesome, but yeah, Pluto. Stupid science. Bah! My universe still has 9 planets.

I think my science ruined Star Wars for my bro, I told him about ion beams and what they really are. I'm a sci-fi kill joy. ;P Killing sci-fi with science, yep. All in a day's work.

And there is certainly progress made towards teleportation and tractor beams (as long as you don't expect it to work like in the Star Trek movies)! And remember, just because we don't have robot butlers now doesn't mean we won't ever.

Science will ultimately lead to the singularity in human evolution..
We will sell our bodies to become digital beings.
The only question is who is, and how to control the matrix of human consciousness.
And to the person that wiped out my entire family with an EMP:
I'm gonna feed you cherries while your alive and send The Pac Man after you!
Your soul will forever be quarantened within the bowls of the yellow puck!
And yet, second chances in life will be as easy as "please enter 50C to continue."

Never give up on robot butlers. There is ALWAYS hope for robot butlers.

I rather expected something else at the bottom of this shirt.

"Thanks, Science."

"Thience."

I love this shirt! I love Pluto! And I love all your comments! Hooray for the states keeping poor Pluto. My universe, too, will always have 9 planets. And I will totally own a robot butler someday.

I agree. I was also thinking about someone who once made the argument that "scientists" used to think the T-Rex was a big scary predator, but now "they" think it might have been a scavenger ... so why bother believing "them" about anything ever.

I don't know. Science is somewhat in a tunnelvision when it comes to nonstandard thinking unless the scientist is an evil genious. Just because something is disproved by conventional science doesn't mean it is impossible.

Nothing is free but if you are lucky it can be inexpensive.

I have to bring up the embarrassing issue of shrinkage. I know, I'm sorry. So, do these shirts shrink? I'd like to stay curvy looking in a woman's shirt and not boxy looking. If the shirt shrinks a little, I'll order the larger size hoping boxy will shrink down to curvy.

Every second you lose some molecules and gain others. Does that mean I can never be prosecuted for a crime? "Your honor, the accused man you see before you is a changed man. Only fifty percent of his molecules were present at the scene of the crime."

Thanks a lot all! I had a ton of really valuable input on this from a bunch of very smart people--so a big thanks to them too!!

And I'll have a robot butler if I have to invent it myself.

That's alright about the robot butler. I'd rather have a robot maid anyway (maybe in a short French maid's uniform) ;3)

Woah this shirt is too hasty - we're still working on robot butlers. For example, here's a $400,000 robot that can can make sandwiches and even fold towels http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gy5g33S0Gzo (just give it a while).

I live in a part of TX that his highly republican and conservative. Therefore they would probably not get the humor and think that I have turned and taken their side. I guess the next day I could wear my Darwin shirt while walking my dog, Darwin. (but I think science disproved some of his theories too -the actual Darwin, not my dog Darwin- ...thanks science!)

C'mon really though, how much do you think you can deduce from a really old fossil of a bone? It's all guessing on what they looked like and how they acted or what they ate. Some of it is an educated guess but until someone sees a T-Rex hunting in the wild (Jurassic Park style) we'll never know.
