  •  the right to teach ignorance (17+ / 0-)

    Hey i have no issue with people teaching ignorance in the privacy of their own homes.
    But let's cut the crap of thinking that faith-based answers should be given equal time in science classrooms across this country.
    In order to be a scientific theory, a theory must have the innate ability to be disproved. A scientific theory allows you to ask questions of it, make predictions based on it, and then through observation or repeatable controlled experiments, verify that the actual answers do or do not match the predicted outcomes.
    As soon as you promote a theory that involves the "supernatural" you are dealing with something that cannot be disproved and therefore you are now outside the realm of science.
    These GOP bozos by catering to their evangelical religious right wing that is increasingly  the base of their party, put our economic future and our national security at risk.
    Historically it is analogous to the English during Elizabethan times as they squared off against Spain for supremacy in Europe. The English dealt with facts as they were, the Spanish made knowledge adhere to the teachings of the Church. We all remember how that one turned out.
    That answer in GQ alone should disqualify Rubio from being anywhere near the White House except maybe on a tour.
