    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    He must be a lot older than I am. What a historic moment that must have been, reunited at last with your ancestor.

    I'm having Aegyptopithecus Almondine in a light, yet vibrant whine sauce. I hope you're OK with the head. The eyes kind of freak me out.

    I don't want anything that you would call a "comprehension of science" and until something can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt, your "science" is based on nothing more than FAITH anyway.

    So far as I'm concerned, if the "scientific" information isn't probable beyond a reasonable doubt IT doesn't belong in a science class either.

    There is no faith whatsoever in science.

    It has been proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Also, why don't you want to comprehend things? It would demystify life. It must be mind boggling living in a world like Alice in Wonderland
    or Winnie the Pooh where there is no science.

    Why is it that the anti-intellectuals and really uneducated people on here are always "Conservative" or "Very Conservative"?

    If you say so. Yet, we teach children and young adults things in our science classes which cannot be entirely proven as if they were cast in stone, dead-nuts lock, irrefutable FACTS. We allow no alternative theories or ideas to be presented. We don't even allow the students to suggest that there might be an alternative theory. The ONLY acceptable answer is the theory that science provides. Accept it or fail the class. Acceptance of unproven data.... sounds a lot like FAITH to me.

    I have seen and experienced enough things in my life that science doesn't even want to admit could happen, nevermind that they did. I lost a lot of respect for science when I realized that in reality it's little more than another organized religion where people empower themselves to suggest that there are no possible alternatives to their Book of Faith. The only difference is that instead of poetry and prose, their book is full of equations that only a handful of clerics and clergymen can actually make heads or tails out of.

    Life is full of mysteries. It always has been and always will be. That is the way I believe it was intended to be, to force us to accept things on Faith.
