    are not the answer.  There is no "debate" possible; science is not opinion, it is fact.  Want to prove someone wrong?  Demonstrate the lack of reproducibility of their research. Why should scientists of whatever stripe/rank waste time arguing nonsense with agenda-ridden charlatans?

    The answer lies in the science curricula of basic education.  In public (ie tax-supported) school systems, science teachers must teach science, not some bowdlerized substitute.  Don't want your kids to learn fact?  Send them to private schools on your own dime, and don't come crying when they can't qualify for med school.

    When "stupidity" suffices, why search for any other reason?
