From above : "It was invented by an atheist! And worse yet... a French atheist!"I have stated many times before that religion holds us back as a species...

Many times I have heard that the standard measurement system helps keep down test scores through conversion tables and extra steps in equations to get to the metric answer.
(Science operates on the metric system as does the entire rest of the civilized world.)
Do you know why we still use the stone age measurement system?
Well there are actual lobbyist in congress that keep us from going metric. And the reason that we haven't converted to metric yet is spectacularly frightening.
I assume you are all sitting down.
Ready for this?
The metric system is the work of the devil!
