Palin vs Science

The level of ignorance displayed here surpasses anything I have heard slip out of George W. Bush's mouth yet. Modern genetics is built on the work done on Drosophila Melanogaster aka "fruit flies." This is the same ignorance that perfuses so many minds attached to bodies that vote. The fear and ignorance on display here explain much of the reason the epidemic of evangelism has spread so fervently in the United States over the past several decades. A union of scientists should coalesce around this soundbite of stupidity and rally with all their might against Sarah Palin, I kid you not!

Yeah who cares about understanding the biochemical mechanisms of disease? If someone gets sick or is born with a congenital defect it was God's will. Right?

Who are these people and why do they have any political clout at all?
And what happened to Renaissance statesmen/women?

Thomas Jefferson once said "Science is my passion, politics my duty."
This philosophy is worth reviving!!!

See Keith's take on this.

She is perfect for America. After all ~50% of you are unable to see that she is absolutely ignorant. Why? Well they are even dumber than Palin. This country is in a really sorry state.

You just got to do something to bring these folks out of the 18th century.
