This may be in fact be the very heart (followed by about 10 other reasons) of why I could never support 95% of ALL of the GOP candidates. If these people can't accept such reasonable, obvious things as truth, how could I possibly trust their judgement on ANYTHING else? If a math teacher taught incorrect equations, or if a geography teacher believed that the tectonic plates were only a myth you would never let them step foot in a classroom since that most likely would only be scratching the surface of their ignorance. You wouldn't want to hear anything else come out of their mouths.

And so, that logic follows with these bonehead politicians.

The right wing's anti-science cult of denial is one of the biggest reasons I had to make such a public break with the "conservative movement."

1. There's ignorance.
2. Then there's willful ignorance.
3. And then there's practiced willful ignorance.

Many of America's self-declared "conservatives" (the Tea Party types) fall into category 2. However, the people at the top of the heap making the money off of the masses of the willful ignorant are in category 3 - and they've practiced unto perfection.

I am writing a term paper for my interdisciplinary writing class on public education that deals specifically with the attempts to reintroduce creationism to public schools. This site is going to be invaluable for references.

I appreciate all that you are doing, Charles, to get this out into the conversation.

Be sure to read the Dover trial decision and check out the NOVA special.

Judge Jones did an excellent job.

History will be very unkind.
