Kevin Drum has been on fire lately on the issue of the Republican war on science. The Republicans are now led by fanatics determined to crush all scientific opinions that contradict the lunatic Right's fondest beliefs and mythology. Go check Drum's post out. (The links are great, too.)
Stalin tried to outlaw genetics. Hitler tried to outlaw the teaching of relativity. Fanatical religious fundamentalists are trying to kill evolution. It ain't gonna work. REALITY IS WHAT IT IS. I feel as if I've said this a million times in my life. OK, I'll make it a million and one: there is no such thing as "Marxist" science. There is no such thing as "National Socialist" science. There is no such thing as "creation" science. There is just science.
In the name of sanity, we MUST win this fight.
