    Is not really going to suffer if there are pockets of culturally-mandated ignorance.

    The ignorant may suffer.

    But probably not ... one does not need to accept any particular theory of science to follow even intricate procedures in STEM and the medical industries.

    Personally, I don't mind if there are people "living in the hollers below god's line-of-sight" who keep their offspring ignorant and less-competitive.   More and better jobs for the children of "Brights", right ?

    On the other hand ... diverting tax money from public schools to religious academies.   I didn't care for it when the motive was racial segregation.  I don't care for it now when the motive is religious self-congratulation.

      about racial segregation, too. It's a feature not a bug.
