Nickel from 2067: A Lesson

Recommended Posts

My first inclination was to simply post this photo and allow everyone to debate:

 

 

[ATTACH]386[/ATTACH]

 

 

But, I decided to make this a lesson. This nickel is the exact reason why we cannot blindly accept anything on the internet as absolute truth. This photo is being passed around and people are analyzing it and debating it. This is fine, because we really should question what is displayed to us as "truth". The media does this to us on a daily basis.

 

 

Is this really a coin from 2067? Is it fake? Was it dropped by a time traveler?

I suppose the time traveler could have dropped his snack.

 

 

Should we consult an expert? Perhaps a chocolate expert?

 

 

I hope we've learned something today. Enjoy.

It actually makes sense in a post WW3 world for food to be used as currency, since it would have more value than a little bit of base metal. I think this is legit. :D

I don't see a pic.

 

 

Fixed! Thanks for letting me know.

 

 

On topic, I've not seen this before but agree that it's a great example. People like to get swept up in magical thinking (which is fine), but we shouldn't let it influence our decision making.

Artifacts from the past and now from future.

 

 

Where I live?

 

 

Theater of absurd.?

 

 

Well, it isn't really from the future.  The point was that we can't just blindly accept things without studying and questioning.  We can be easily deceived that way.

How we can studying if we are not owner of it.

 

 

I was speaking in general. Are you using Google translate?

Totally agree with PaulaJedi. If it cannot be tested, then we shouldn't become too enthusiastic about it. That's the basic principle of science.

I was actually being sarcastic about the expert thing.  At any rate, the coin is a piece of chocolate that is not from the future.
