Wirkuswhazz has a good point in comments, which I felt I had to respond to.
“Four more years of scientific decisions being made by people who believe in a ghost in the clouds.” Einstein believed in god. How do you take that?
It’s one thing to say that there is a supreme being beyond our ken while admitting that physics exist, and can be measured. Einstein believed in the scientific method, he believed in mathematics, and he believed that while Newton’s Laws of Physics held for almost all everyday occurances between two bodies that they broke down under extreme circumstances. It’s anathema to a scientist to ban science or ignore repeatable, testable results altogether because it makes Jesus cry. Though I am not religious and have contempt for it, I believe that non-fundamental religious conviction and scientific theory can easily co-exist in many scientific disciplines (perhaps save for evolutionary theory and such).
I see your point of turning the quote I posted on its head. To be true to myself here, I must apologize for posting something that generalized and unfair to a lot of Americans. However, the scientific community, including 48 Nobel laureates, DID rise up and denounce the use of scientific evidence by the Bush Administration. Yet another one of things about this presidency that annoys me is that intellectualism is frowned upon or dismissed altogether. It’s as if Jesus provided all the progress from the Dark Ages until today, not the discovery of electromagnetic fields and atomic principles. Those eggheads in their ivory towers and their jesus-hating can burn in hell! Fuck global warming, Clymer, we gotta get those fags to stop marrying each other!
