  •  The mixing of.. (6+ / 0-)

    ..ideology and science results in really, really bad science.  To try to explain natural phenomena by saying "That's the way God wants it" to me implies the worst kind of intellectualy laziness- "I don't know what is going on, it is difficult for me to figure out, so I think that since I cannot figure it out, it is too difficult for ANY human to figure out, therefore, God did it."
     By putting Religious Right ideologues into positions of power, or by vetoing funding of stem cell research, Bush seems to be projecting his own lact of intellect onto the entire scientific community.
     That should have gone out with the Inquisition.

    In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act. - George Orwell
