    What, indeed, is an atheist? He is one who destroys delusions which are harmful to humanity in order to lead men back to nature, to reality, to reason. Baron d'Holbach

    If we go back to the beginnings of things, we shall always find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that imagination, rapture and deception embellished them; that weakness worships them; that custom spares them; and that tyranny favours them in order to profit from the blindness of men. Baron d'Holbach

    There is an even older speed record that has stood since 1967 and current contenders don't even come close to matching it. What is it?
    Can I hazard a guess that it's something to do with motorcycles?
    No unfortunately it is not a motorcycle record, this machine is a little bit faster.

    Jet powered aircraft? (the SR71 Blackbird would have been setting records around that time).

    If it's not the worlds fastest Indian, it's gotta be a X series jet plane.

    Nope, can't get closer than a X series, almost bought a model a few years ago of the one I think holds the record but can't remember the designation

    Just stick to the idea that science tests falsifiable hypotheses to destruction.

    Unfortunately for Geoff, he has the only forum name I know offhand with the "mane" in it to make the joke!
