If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Idiot America's idiot problem is much worse than I thought. There is no hope.


I have frequently written about Idiot America's Christian War Against Science Education. The Christian assholes are winning. A large percentage of America's science teachers are science deniers, and taxpayers pay their salaries. In their biology classrooms they are teaching magical creationism instead of evolution, and they're getting away with it. In some states it's legal what they're doing. In other states they are not allowed to teach magical bullshit but they teach it anyway and nobody complains because the students are fucking idiots.

My state, Florida, is one of the worst anti-science states, despite our new public school science standards that make evolution one of the big ideas of science.

Rational people need to fight back. We need to take these fucking morons to court. The alternative is to do nothing and let Idiot America become as backward as the Muslim theocracies. Oh wait, that's already happened.

Please notice that the states on the map that have no green or orange or red dots, those states have the same problem. For example in Minnesota (which is near the North Pole) 25% of their public school biology teachers illegally teach magical creationism and they get away with it.

There is no hope.
