There are two kinds of failures of memory. One is remembering that which has never happened and the other is forgetting that which did. In my case, from life experience, I’m vastly more likely to forget an incident than to remember an incident that never happened. *
There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know.*
Pravdapedia and Neil Tyson Truthers
The science-loving censors at Wikipedia, not content with memory-holing unassailable facts about Neil Tyson’s history of fabricating quotes (part 1, part 2, and part 3), are now trying to completely erase The Federalist from Wikipedia.
Since the Tyson fabrication scandal broke, Wikipedia’s little army of tinpot propagandists has been hard at work shoving facts and evidence down the memory hole. To date, Tyson’s Wikipedia page has been revised at least 60 times since the story broke last week. Every time a reference to the scandal is added, a Tyson Truther removes it. Despite the fact that no evidence exists that Bush ever said “Our God is the God who named the stars” shortly after 9/11 as a way of segregating Christians and Jews from Muslims, under no circumstances will Wikipedia allow that site to note that Tyson’s fabricated quote is obviously fake and non-existent. What’s the difference between Jesus Christ and a Neil deGrasse Tyson quote? For starters, we have historical evidence that Jesus Christ existed.
