Over Easy: Monday Science
Good Morning All!
Have you ever wondered why I do a science post on a leftist political blog like FDL? It’s because anymore, science IS political.
Reality has a well known liberal bias – S. Colbert.
Worse, they are PROUD not to be knowledgeable of science. Even publications like the National review says the GOP “must embrace science to survive”. The GOP’s response is to double down on anti science.
Except for ideology. Ideology states that the earth is less than 10,000 years old. Ideology states that climate change is NOT human driven. Ideology states that abstinence education works. Ideology states that pollution is less bad than regulation. And so on.
How do you combat such intentional ignorance? BY EDUCATION! Read something other than People. National Geographic. Scientific American. The Economist. So many others. Miley’s latest wardrobe malfunction is interesting, but it doesn’t really make your brain work.
So that’s why I do this. This is my combat, my way of fighting back.
I don’t work for FDL. Or for a left coast billionaire. Or if I do, they’re sure unreliable when it comes to issuing paychecks! I do this because I enjoy it and because i like to imagine I’m making a difference.
You can make a difference, too. Even you choose to lurk. Cough up $10 for FDL. Anymore, that’s just a McMeal or a pack or two of smokes. FDL is worth that.
If you click this linky, Over Easy gets the credit for guilting you into prying your wallet or purse open!
And I get to continue posting nifty links like these:
Platinum is an expensive material, yet it is an invaluable catalyst. Here, someone is getting good results from graphene instead.
