To be fair, the use of a calendar was considered witchcraft at one point.

Kansas state legislature did something right?

Um, okay... Hurray for Kansas!

To make it more interesting, there's this.   A study published in the journal Nature Climate Change shows the more science-literate a person is, the more they doubt global warming.

I assume this is what the scientists who conducted the study look like:

serial_crusher: whew, that was a close one.  For a minute there I was afraid our students would have to be exposed to Republican propaganda like "critical thinking", and schools would be forced to teach science objectively.


... I'll put you down as "possible double-sarcasm."

Nothing that the GOP does "casts doubt on global warming". It may cast derp, but not doubt.

PsiChick: serial_crusher: whew, that was a close one.  For a minute there I was afraid our students would have to be exposed to Republican propaganda like "critical thinking", and schools would be forced to teach science objectively.

Legally forcing teachers to explain that 90% of scientists agree with climate change would have been wonderful, I agree.


OK, kids.  It's time for our legislatively-mandated class on critical thinking in science.  So here's the data:

95% of scientists agree that man-made global warming - or at least man-made climate change - is a real thing.  The other 5% of air-quotes "scientists" /close air quotes - are uniformly engineers and not actually researchers, or geologists who know less about the climate than the weather girl with the inflated ballons in her chest that swell / collapse as the barometric pressure changes - and are all paid directly by oil companies anyway.  This is akin to a drug mule arrested with 15 condoms of blow lodged in his anus telling you that crack is cool.

There is no evidence for 'intelligent design'.  None at all.  More people have sex in the champagne room than have ever found evidence of creationism.  At most creationism can poke temporary and eventually filled holes in the theory of evolution.  Which is akin to saying that because a piece of fruit is not red, it must be an orange.

Interesting that people who are "anti-science" and "anti-critical thinking" seem to be so incompetent in so many areas requiring logical thought.

atomic-age: Skail: It still baffles me that, in this day and age and in this first-world country, there can be people who are "anti-science."

Brownback is doing his level best to turn Kansas into a third world country: a rich person's paradise (aside from the vermin, weather, and neighbors) and make the poor, working class, and middle class fund it.

Most of them probably also think the Earth is 5000 years old so deadlines are tough to meet thanks to their conversion table. A 60 day deadline you say? We'll get back to you in 9 million years.
