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

America's god-soaked assholes and their never ending war against science.

In America there is a never ending war against science. Why? What's the problem? Why do science deniers deny the established truth of evolution by natural selection even though it's the strongest fact of science, supported by thousands of evidences from several branches of science?
The problem is the science deniers want to throw out science and replace it with their magical ideas. That's very strange because magic is just a childish fantasy and most certainly magic is not real.  
There could nothing more anti-science than magic. So people who want to defend their magical ideas have to attack science, they have to attack scientists, and worst of all they have to attack science education.
Can this terrible problem be fixed? Can these people be cured, or is there some way to at least keep them from destroying science education?
So far it doesn't look good here in Idiot America. The science deniers always lose in court but that doesn't prevent them from harassing and threatening biology teachers, or trying to get laws passed to dumb down science education to accommodate their magical ideas.
Sometimes I think there is no hope for this country. We will forever be an international laughing stock.
