In 1984, I read his book, Counting the Eons.

It was the first book I ever read so full of nonsense and silliness that I took copious notes and critiqued it, then sent my notes to the publisher who forwarded them to Isaac Asimov.

First I will show you the postcard Isaac wrote to me and then I will critique his ignorant postcard, which by the way I sold on E-Bay for $75 ! Woot.

I covered over my name and address.

In his few sentences here, Asimov's ignorance is in full throat.

1. He blames the failure of religion on religion, neglecting the obvious fact that if you do not follow the precepts, the instructions, then you cannot blame the book which you purposely ignored and neglected.

2. On the subject of "humanity's social ignorance and weakness," consider that:
A. Isaac Asimov neglected his own family to pursue his passion of self-aggrandizing writing. His referenced book is 1230 pages in length, a horribly boring read. I quit after just a few dozen pages which blathered needlessly and said nothing anyone would care about.
B. Asimov's son, who he long neglected, was arrested in Northern California a few years ago for possession of child pornography on his computer. Shades of Hunter Biden! What kind of fathers raise these kinds of sons?
C. Asimov was SO INGNORANT that he refused to fly on any commercial aircraft, which happen to be ten times safer per passenger mile than driving a car.
D. Asimov became a fervent atheist after he prayed to God to help him pass a chemistry test in high school. After he failed it, he renounced God for the remainder of his miserable life. Asimov would show God, by God!

3. On the subject of my critique, Asimov completely ignored all of it, not because it was without merit, but because he had no answers and he knew it. I'll just provide a few examples for Asimov sycophants to grind their teeth on:

Page 12 "If the tube (used to breath through when underwater) is long enough and wide

enough, all the exhaled air remains in that long tube and you will breathe the same air over

and over again and it will not be long before you suffocate".



[Wrong again. If you extend a tube a mere 18" under water, and position yourself vertically

below it, the hydrostatic pressure precludes you from inspiring your first breath. I have tried it

as a scuba diver. EVEN IF that were not the case, his argument still fails. Exhale out your

nose.]


Page 21: "Raise the temperature of ice and it melts."


[Ice melts at a constant temperature - 0 degrees C.]

Page 150: ". . . there is an object a mile above the surface of the earth that is moving upward

at a constant speed. We can tell when it started its journey . . . there is nothing in the upward

direction to stop, we could conclude that it would travel forever and its journey would have no

end."



[Let's not complicate "science" with, oh say wind resistance, or even gravity. Such

oversights make his poor writing look as trivial as, "negative energy"!]
Wasn't he a science fiction writer?

Isaac Asimov - Wikipedia

Isaac Asimov was an American writer and professor of biochemistry at Boston University. He was known for his works of science fiction and popular science. Asimov was a prolific writer. He wrote or edited more than 500 books. He also wrote an estimated 90,000 letters and postcards.

Asimov wrote hard science fiction. Along with Robert A. Heinlein and Arthur C. Clarke, Asimov was considered one of the "Big Three" science fiction writers during his lifetime. Asimov's most famous work is the "Foundation" series, the first three books of which won the one-time Hugo Award for "Best All-Time Series" in 1966. His other major series are the "Galactic Empire" series and the

Letters always come with a copyright in the corner of the envelope... and it took 3 years to get to you??
The letter is dated 1984, but the envelope you have is dated 1981.
And the other problem is $.13 postage ended in 1979. Postage was $.15 in 1981. If it was supposed to be 1984 then it would have been $.20.

FFS - Dude... if you are going to post up a fake claim, you should at least make sure the years on the two documents match... let alone the postage amount.

Having said that.... I don't care about Asimov's politics.
I only care about his stories. And they were very good.

IA was an arrogant sex predator; he had 20 year olds accompanying him wherever he went.
This does not take away from the fact that he was to science fiction what the Beatles were to music.

Hateful, condescending, ignorant atheist who neglected his wife and son. He's a Poster Child for Leftists. And "Jane Fonda was a good actress" some will say. How about that Adolph Hitler. Great speaker, eh? He and Obama.....

I exposed the ugly side of the smiling rich white man. You defend him on the basis of his story telling. And the crowd chose Barabbas.
LMAO! Wow. You are really going overboard here, aren't you?

Believe it or not, there are millions of people who do not believe what you believe. But feel free to ridicule them all.
You put your words in my mouth and then giggle as if you said something cute or coherent.
I ridiculed Isaac Asimov. I simply expressed amazement at those "millions of people" who don't know... the rest of the story.

Why don't you moderate more and chip in your two cents less. The injustice is that I cannot put you on Ignore, where you deserve to be.

There's only one member in this thread that deserves to be on "ignore," and it isn't WinterBorn, it's you. The next time you contribute anything of value to this board will be the first time.

One of the greats..however..he published more non-fiction books than fiction..by a huge margin!
Asimov was known for his ability to 'de-mystify' math and science..countless used his techniques for learning.

Letters always come with a copyright in the corner of the envelope... and it took 3 years to get to you??
The letter is dated 1984, but the envelope you have is dated 1981.
And the other problem is $.13 postage ended in 1979. Postage was $.15 in 1981. If it was supposed to be 1984 then it would have been $.20.

FFS - Dude... if you are going to post up a fake claim, you should at least make sure the years on the two documents match... let alone the postage amount.

Having said that.... I don't care about Asimov's politics.
I only care about his stories. And they were very good.
Wow.. He really did try to fake it.. So much for Chemical Engineer.
Now that is just plain pathetic! Forge some shit..for..why? An obscure message board where no one really even cares?

Dude needs some real affirmation in his life for sure..to be resorting to such tactics!
i have several Chemical Engineers in my family.. Georgia Tech and MIT.. They are bright guys.. not peculiar.. and they sure didn't fall for Trump's con job.

I never read any of his stuff.
I tried but the several I tried to read were stupid!!

BTW: I read "Dune" in one sitting. Damn good read!

You have to consider when they were written.
The Foundation series began in 1951. The style of writing Sci-Fi then was infinitely different than how they are written now, or even decades ago.
His most well known book (arguably) was written in 1950. 70 years ago! He wrote about how computers were connected together just like they actually are today via the internet.... 33 years before TCP/IP was established that made the internet possible.
His vision of how artificially driven robots controlled by a central cloud server is pretty damn clever.

I have several engineers in the family and in my community; a lot of them had zero contract work until Trump's tax break.

So did some of mine.
Over half the people I know went to Harvard or Yale.
In my world not being educated is something to be ashamed of, being educated is considered normal.

He was right. You are silly and know far less than you think

It is a shame that our browsers do spell check but can't do stupid check before that final click.

Yes, what a shame.
Nobody has come to his defense of his written nonsense in his published book. Nobody has and nobody will because nobody can.
To boot, I made money off his stupidity.
Finally, Lefty, you have no idea what I know. Not a clue. You simply parrot Leftist arrogance and condescension. Asimov is the subject. Asimov and his ignorance.

He was too busy looking in the mirror to be ashamed of his pedophile son.
It far overshadows his skills at writing fiction.
