Gold is much better than fiat money that for sure will be devalued and turn to useless paper. You can't even wipe your #$%$ with it. In addition, gold is used for jewelry and technology. By the way, you can eat gold and it is good... People drink gold power with liquor. Finally, gold has a finite supply while fiat money can be created by will. Ask Ben from the Fed if you don't trust me.
If Gold weren't good for anything than individuals wouldn't risk life and limb trying to find a tiny speck of it. People don't invest time, money and risk life for something that has no value. If Gold isn't good for much why does Fort Knox place guards around it, and countries continue to acquire it? I could go on but really anybody with a brain knows that Gold has intrinsic value regardless of what others chose to believe.
