What somebody wrote at today's Calvin & Hobbes

It is always so very sad to see how LARGE and VOCAL the anti-science attitudes are in the population. Global warming is very, very well supported from a myriad of scientific studies and research reports. The same is true for ideas of evolution. The largest preponderance of studies and reports supports the tenets of evolutionary theory.
The population that is so virulently anti-science has an unfortunate lack of understanding of the science process…. namely that nothing is ever proven 100% in science. It is a concept of thinking that is based upon probabilities. When 95+% of research studies provide statistically relevant data in support of a particular question, it is considered extremely well supported.
This was my reply:
Well done what you wrote. America is infested with science deniers. Evolution and global warming makes them cry.
