PM5390: About Last Thursdayism

Last Thursdayism (and its relatives Last Tuesdayism and Last Wednesdayism) can be seen as hyperomphalisms, extreme forms of omphalist doctrine. As such they constitute a sceptical hypothesis, specifically in regard to the past. They entail the rejection of most generally accepted claims about the past - the denial of the Big Bang, the denial of evolution, the denial of the existence of the Roman Empire, the denial of the existence of Jesus, the denial of the existence of the Holocaust, the denial of the existence of JFK, the denial of the existence of Elvis.
