- you are suffering from a severe case of cognitive dissonance if you honestly think Obama is more anti-science than the Republicans. I mean seriously, there is zero point in continuing this conversation if you cannot grasp that simple truth. The Earth is not flat, and pi does not equal 3 no matter how many times you and the Republicans try to repeat it is (metaphorically speaking of course).Mar 16, 2012

Of course the Earth is not flat - Eratosthenes knew that more than 2,000 years ago and most informed people since. If you know of a Republican Candidate who has stated that pi is equal to 3 please cite it because I haven't run across it. President Obama has clearly shown an anti-science stance by funneling Federal Funds to companies like SolyndraMar 16, 2012
- , you're wasting your breath on these people who are anti-Republican for the sake of being so. I dislike Republicans as much as the next sane guy but I don't ever let myself ignore facts when they don't mesh with my prejudices.
These guys are all ass clowns.Mar 18, 2012
- How quaint.comes bursting in here with a bunch of ad hominems, and completely ignores the fact that the vast majority of Republicans don't even believe in evolution, much less anthropogenic climate change. There's a reason why only 6% of all scientists are Republican you ignoramus. Rational thinking is in conflict with conservative dogma.Mar 19, 2012
- My exception to's statement was centered more around his confusion between anti-science and innovation. Trying to encourage confidence and innovation in an unproven concept (like energy alternatives) is not anti-scientific. You can argue the cost/benefit analysis and make your arguments there. But the concept works, you just have to find a way to intergrate it into our current stratagies. Will it work? Who knows, but comparing Obama's push for this energy policy cannot be compared to people who deny the scientific concesus of the age of the earth, how life-forms evolve, and that the climate is changing. Republicans have argued against these topics by attacking the science and the scientists instead of using logical arguments. What's more, they push policy that marginalizes real scientific breakthroughs just because the disagree with it politcally. That's anti-science.
I appreciate engaging in a spirited debate and despite the fact we disagree, he is at least more agreeable than .Mar 19, 2012
