eternal flame Wrote: It is like the right-wingers are always saying --- they want to take us back to the Dark Ages. They want to reverse all our modern history, where we have freedoms and rights and modern conveniences. They want to UN-DO our Democracy. I guess they're all just a little bit "backward" (in mentality).This of course would mean that STUPIDITY REIGNS. We can all just go back and Pretend that Everything we learned about the World is NOT FLAT is all wrong, Remember now, we can't sail out too far from shore, or we will "fall off the edge of the earth." And we can pretend we never reached the Moon, or explored the solar system with little robotic probes. And we can discard all medical progress, & go back to beating on drums and blowing smoke in the victim's faces. Why do right-wingers want to methodically erase all History of human knowledge & achievements? Main Reason: They were the dumbest kids in their class at school, and flunked those subjects. And NOW they are not any smarter than they were then, so STILL can't learn it. So instead they want to insist that ALL the rest of us be as dumb as they are. Ask yourself why Repubs in Congress never have submitted any BILLS to Obama, to be approved? They just walk out & take a few months Vacation, & DO NOTHING. They are unable to think of new bills to propose, and to even READ the ones submitted by the Democrats. But if they stayed in Wash DC, everyone would hear exactly how dumb they are, & it would be filmed by the press and put on the NEWS, so the whole nation could see what jerks they had voted for. HOWEVER, we the people should not have to pay a Huge Salary to guys who are dumber than a box of moon rocks, and we should demand a REFUND of what salary they have cheated us out of. And then they would not be out in Las Vegas gambling & boozing OUR money away & picking up hookers. (Those are the only JOBS they have ever created). ha haIf you truly examine the so-called Education most right-wingers receive, often they have "fake" diplomas from a few "fake" universities. You may have heard of some of those places. For instance, Michelle Bachmann has gone to Oral Roberts University (a right wing preacher namesake) & HE was not only preaching False Christian Doctrine, but cheating sick people out of money for one of his "fake" medical cures for arthritis. It also shows you the character of these so-called right-wing "Christians" -- since Michelle Bachmann's husband made tons of money trying to "cure" gay men, and all people of true science knows his methods are purely "bogus". But it sure helps to fill the Bachmann's Swiss Bank Accts, with lotsa crooked money.If you scratch beneath the surface of most right-wingers you will find sleaze balls, dummies, and outright crooks. And many of them are not ashamed of it. They have created their own environment of "approval" & even "applause" for being crooked and stupid. Even the famous Millionaires among them. But if you have more money than God, you can always bribe lawyers and officials to "cover your butt." And so it goes ----- America is now supposed to just go quietly "backward" in education, knowledge, & invention, (& in medical research) -- so our "enemies" the Communists, will go FORWARD, & take over the Whole Earth. REMEMBER that in the 1940's (World War II) Grandpa Prescott Bush, was aiding & abetting the NAZI's - Third Reich in Germany as they brutally exterminated millions of Jews. (NAZI's are National Socialists, akin to Communists). America fought a whole World War to stop them from their brutality. But Grandpa Prescott Bush was making tons of money with his Republican pals, helping the Nazi's corporation (I. G. FARBEN) to build military machines, concentration camps, & even Zyklon gas to kill the Jews. He & GOP pals were having such fun making money, that they wouldn't stop until Uncle Sam hit them with the "Trading With the Enemy Act" of 1942. (Think of the "morals" involved in that hideous Nazi investment).Then remember that Grandpa Prescott Bush was also a Yale graduate, who had belonged to the Skull & Bones Society, AS DID - DADDY BUSH, (#41) (George H. W. Bush) and then -- George W. Bush, Jr. (POTUS #43). High morals was apparently NOT a requirement for THAT membership. But I would hope that some degree of morals would be a requirement for PRESIDENT of the United States. (Guess I was wrong, since we see a whole lot of strange immoral conduct with Georgie, Jr, --- like a "War Crime" of starting a totally illegal WAR against IRAQ, (for totally bogus reasons) & with the very personal greedy motive of "stealing their OIL" --- to fill Bush pockets. NONE of that OIL money was shared with the American public to help pay the enormous cost of that war, or to pay for the Health care of the grievously wounded soldiers who managed to come back home alive. NO, not one dime of that money was given to the taxpaying American public, OR to the disabled & crippled soldiers who fought that war (an unnecessary lying war) -- since Bush & Co, were too busy raking in the $$Millions in their private & Swiss bank accts. FOR THEIR OWN PRIVATE crooked GREED, // IF THAT IS NOT TREASON, then the Dictionaries are way behind the times. If any true Justice ever prevailed (for the 9/11 War) the entire GOP would all be in Prison. (or worse).But true justice never prevails in a society that allows "rigging" of elections, for Communist millionaires (like the Koch Bros) to "buy" elections, & to "rig" the Supreme Court to always be on their side. IF a truly "good man" gets elected right now, you will see him getting ridiculed (by the phoney anchors on Faux News), & thwarted at every turn by crooked congressional Repubs, (too lazy & stupid to do their job). The American public is now basically naiive & unaware that our political system has been infiltrated by the Birch Society and other Communist influences, for 57 years. They could never understand that the Republicans have been trying with every means, (& using all their Million$) to takeover & destroy OUR "govt of, by & for the People". That IF this battle is lost, America WILL go backward 250 years, and lose our world leadership, sacrificing it all to the Communist forces abroad. And those very same Communist forces are the same ones (JBS) who fought INTERNALLY to destroy this Democracy - to subvert & destroy American power in the world.

I fully agree with both of your sentiments. Scientists making wild claims that they can eventually prove through the scientific method has changed the world in more ways than one. And rogue scientists who don't have any science backing them up do a huge disservice. The scientists denying global climate change fit into this category. They remind me of the 'scientists' the big tobacco companies hired to tell America that their product was perfectly safe.
