qorkfiend: Fluorescent Testicle: OneTimed: I think it's more important that our politicians are scientifically literate, not necessarily scientists.

I would be happy with one simple yes-or-no question.

"Do you believe in evolution?"

If they answer "No," they're either forced to take a high school science class or banned from politics for life.

I don't think it should be "believe". A better question might be "Do you understand the scientific basis and reasoning behind the theory of evolution?"

Even betterer question: 'When you reach an unknown, do you study it, perform tests, analyze results and reach a likely conclusion based on the current tools available to us, or do you Because Jesus?'

Fluorescent Testicle: lousyskater: As a Wind Turbine Technician, this one really rustled my jimmies.

gulogulo: Yeah, well, trying being an ecologist. ... In my field, most laypeople are convinced they know better than the scientists studying it. See: climate change, deforestation, fragmentation, invasive species, cats.

My degree was in palaeontology. Imagine how I feel about creationism. :P

well, being a metaphysicist, imagine how I feel about their paradoxically categorized dualism, god in the cracks optimism, and arbitrarily prescribed moral relativism.
