"Copernicus wasn't 100% right, we should teach the other side of the theory"


Now that the Republicans have abandoned the "National Security, Keep the wars going, Take out the Al Queda, Effective management of Government, Extending health care, Combating climate change, Stewards of the Economy, Fairness in Taxation, Equality in Marriage, Fairness to Minorities, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Real Job Creation, and just about every reasonable thing that the US Government has done in the last 30 years arguments in the campaign, and instead embraced efforts to expand the US Government into the field of preventing access to women that want to control unwanted pregnancies, we should assume that;


Hysteria about teaching Evolution is up next.

By May we should have regressed in public dialogue to challenging the heliocentric cosmology of the galaxy and to be fair and balanced we should atleast present the other theory of an earth based cosmology so that students can make up their mind.

That will last a couple of weeks and then we will be faced with the question of "who really should be occupying Jerusalem". Its been such a long time since we had a really really earnest Crusade.

By the general election Republicans will have worked their way back to "Were the Inquisitions really THAT bad, there was no gang problem in 1501".

1. Conservatives don't want anyone to make up their own mind

That is what all their efforts are about, keeping people ignorant.

19. I've actually seen someone on a

different posting site argue that slavery really did help black people because at least now they're in the USA and not Africa. I don't think they were trolling either.

11. wow wowdi wowsi wowser wowsa wowza

wow wow wow

I thought I could get to a point of absurdity where I would out pace the stupidity.

It is literally not possible.

Now if only we could get Santorum to include this into his acceptance speech when he gets the nomination then

I would accept that as definite proof that there is a God in the Universe and that he has a wicked sense of humor.

12. Santorum? He was defending the Crusades last year

Rick Santorum: The Crusades Get A Bad Rap!

Jillian Rayfield, February 2011:

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2011/02/rick-santorum-the-crusades-get-a-bad-rap.php?m=1 : If you were worried there wouldn’t be a 2012 candidate touting the pro-Crusades platform, then today is your lucky day!

“The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical,” former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) told a South Carolina audience yesterday. “And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.”

Santorum’s defense of the Crusades came in Spartanburg, S.C., reports Andy Barr of Politico....

Referring to the “American left,” Santorum observed: “They hate Western civilization at the core. That’s the problem.” Sanoturm also suggested that American involvement in the Middle East is part of our “core American values.” “What I’m talking about is onward American soldiers,” Santorum continued. “What we’re talking about are core American values. ‘All men are created equal’ — that’s a Christian value, but it’s an American value.”

15. Well, if Rick says so...

 

Santorum may as well keep spewing this kind of nonsense. It's what his donors want to hear, it's got him this far, and it may get him the GOP nomination. But it won't get him the presidency. Not even close.

14. I remember the fundies that freaked out when they were told the moon shines by reflected light.

Cuz somewhere in the babble it sez that the Moon shines by its own light.

And they were freaked out about it.

18. You were lucky that you escaped.

They probably don't believe that the Sun produces heat and light through nuclear fusion either. Hydrogen into helium.

The concept of nuclear fusion may be too much for them.
