    Great Cartoon, the whole thing simplified.

    A theory is a theory right? So why doesn’t my theory equal your theory?

    The answer is that a Scientific Theory has to meet certain rules, and guidelines. It must be something that can be questions, tested, and analyized.

    If you say that there are little green men on Mars, you have to show some proof that they are there, explain how they can exist and survice on Mars, and why they are little, and why they are green.

    To say that it is Gods Will is not a Theory, it is a belief, and just because you believe something doesn’t makes it true.

    After all there are those who believe that the GOP is the party of the little people, and care about American values.

    Only ideas which are substantiated by reality are good. Like, the Republicans are bigots who prey upon the uneducated with fear. Since Reagan they have destroyed the middle Class doing it.

    Is that supposed to be Don McLeroy? http://tinyurl.com/yehttma

    Don’t think Ol’ Don has read much by or about Tom Jefferson.

    @kreole

    harleyquinn - how do you manage to be totally and completely stupidly wrong on everything?


    Well, it takes a lot of effort. In fact, all of his waking hours. The key is making sure that you use the “right” sources. In his/her case, anything but well studied, peer-reviewed literature.

    (And I say that as a professional evolutionary biologist. Ain’t no way harleyquinn has read and really understood the import of the data and experimentation supporting evolution.)

    Unfortunately, kreole, that man IS teaching in far too many places.

    The “Teacher” has a list of names for scientific theorists on his right but only wacky theories on his left. Shouldn’t there be a list of conspiracy theorists there, not their theories. Hmm? Robertson, Limbaugh,,,,,,,,,,,,,,?

    Thank you, M. Kitt. I live in Texas, and I and my colleagues have to put up with this nonsense constantly, with respect to many scientific issues.

    It often seems like the Enlightenment never happened, or, perhaps more correctly, that many political groups wish that it hadn’t.

    Maybe we should let Texas secede and all the right wing believers and religious nuts move there and stay away from the rest of us. Build a big wall around it while we’re at it. And cut off communication so we don’t have to listen to them.

    @MurphyHerself

    I’ve heard that suggestion on many occasions. As a counterpoint, I have two ideas (only one of which is serious; see if you can figure out which one it is).

    1. If you let Texas secede, at least make Austin the “Berlin” of Texas with massive airlifts of supplies as was done for Berlin after WWII.

    2. The only real cure for ignorance is education. Large groups of ignorant humans are not only a danger to themselves but also to everyone else who has to live with the consequences of their ill-informed choices.

    We also have “evidence” written in stone. On the one hand the religious have tablets nobody has ever actually seen.(stones or gold plates in a hat) On the other hand we have fossils in stone, coal and petroleum. (and records frozen in ice).

    One side can put up, the other is a put on.

    ^^”My own views on evolution are not that popular” – what are they? why are they not popular?
