    I am far more concerned with the policies of politician's that can actually impact the country, like economic and fiscal matters.
    If someone wants to believe the world is 6,000 years old or several billion is their own business.

    And you don't think that negatively impacting science education won't affect the future of the country and even the world?

    I think my point is now proven.

    I don't accept your scenario. I think that's complete nonsense.
    What science is not being taught? The notion that sound science isn't being taught in our schools because people like Michelle Bachmann believe in Creationism is absolute myth.

    THAT......Is not only "anti-intellectual"....its also lunacy.
    Sochi is a prime example of all that is good pertaining Socialism.
