And while I'm on the subject of government stupidity, the White House is also appointing people to NASA to get them to cut back on all this science talk, and force the creationist, religious zealot agenda in other areas besides biology.
The Big Bang is “not proven fact; it is opinion,” Mr. Deutsch wrote, adding, “It is not NASA’s place, nor should it be to make a declaration such as this about the existence of the universe that discounts intelligent design by a creator.”
[Deutsch’s email] continued: “This is more than a science issue, it is a religious issue. And I would hate to think that young people would only be getting one-half of this debate from NASA. That would mean we had failed to properly educate the very people who rely on us for factual information the most.”
Actually, that's very much NASA's place. And for fuck's sake, until you religious whackjobs know what 'theory' means when it comes to science? Shut the hell up. Religious and science are two seperate things. Students aren't getting half the debate. There is no other side of the debate! At least not a side that says "And the invisible sky bully made it so".
Someone fetch me some lions, it's feeding time, again.
