    Actually, many things in science are quite simple.

    It’s asking too much of a Republican/Fox “news” viewer to handle complexity.


    Just give them a slogan, like ‘jobs, Jobs, JOBS!’ and they’re happy. You don’t have to provide jobs or anything, just give them the slogan and then blame Obama.

    Yes very true and it isn’t in just one Political mind set either. Too many want to take the easy road. They want sports but not news. They want simple answers to complex questions. They don’t want to put out anymore than what they have in their life to earn a living then enjoy its fruits on down time.

    Most of those who are interested in the news at all do so only locally. Fewer and fewer as you go to national then international news. Most don’t care.

    The easiest way is the best for most of them.

    So are both roads leading over the edge in this strip?

    Interesting that the left is to the right moving up (higher learning, perhaps?) and the right is heading for a short walk to dive off head first to oblivion. Too bad in real life they will happily take us all with them.

    One path goes quickly over the cliff.
    The other appears to go past the horizon.

    I’m perfectly willing to deal with Republicans who understand and appreciate what science is about.
    There seem to be no Tea Party Republicans who understand science.

    Randy_B and pointspread, we all have to go over that “edge” sooner or later….It just depends on how soon or how much later…..All we can do is make decisions and hope they’re the right ones….

    Science indicates the human brain is evolved to accept the simplest answer that proves accurate for immediate consideration, and builds on that in its spare time. This is so you don’t have to perform all the calculations to come to a rational solution, but just act quickly and correctly on the fly.
    When it fails, it is quite spectacular. You never see a falcon run into obvious obstacles at 40 mph through a woods, but humans often crash into thing negotiating their life options at the speed of temporal flow.

    @Randy_B

    But how many do you know?
    Just the ones the public relations arm of their opposition in both parties have given you as examples to be mocked and ridiculed?
    How do you know that you aren’t a TEA Party person?

    That was about the laws that limit government and how they are a series of negative rights that say “No, you can’t”.

    if I may suggest: the science road sign is more like “sometimes complex, sometimes simple, many times right, but often we just don’t know better – follow the road and find out for yourself. And if you find something new, don’t forget to share”. But they didn’t have space for the wording and had to simplify…
