After investigating a disturbance, Skeptic Man met this rather angry young… lizard, who claimed to be a shrunken Godzilla.
Skeptic Man wondered; Was Godzilla really big enough to step on buildings? Did he in fact step on buildings? If he did step on buildings, was it really an accident? Did the Japanese then zap him with a shrinking ray when they could have just blown the crap out him instead?
Actually what is really worrying Skeptic Man the most is the actual plausibility of shrinking someone or something. He wonders; would they shrink every individual molecule, atom, sub-atomic particle? Or would they scale it down and throw away all the extra bits? Skeptic Man quickly rules out the former, and not just because it’s more complex and difficult, but because if that had happened Godzilla would have died immediately. He would no longer be able to breath as the membranes in his lungs would no longer allow the oxygen molecules to pass through. His enzymes would no longer fits neatly onto what they are supposed to break down. etc, etc. This list of problems would in fact be a very long one. Ok, so it must be option 2; they scale down and discard the left-overs. But then the smallest and most intricate parts (like neurons in the brain) would no longer function properly with half their parts missing. Skeptic Man follows this line of thought to all of the logical conclusions, often speaking out loud, and alternately answering his own questions and objections. . until he eventually realises that mini-Godzilla had left several hours earlier.
………Oh well, another job well done.
