    One of the oldest methods in book of controlling the masses is to keep the populace ignorant and uneducated....and that's what propaganda and lying does.

    Look at how Putin uses propaganda and lies to control the Russian population...then you start to see how it is being used by the Trump administration on the US population. The similarities are uncanny.

    Smart people aren't limited to scientists.

    There is a difference between requiring and, as the thread title says, allowing.

    By that standard, anything that one disagrees with could be considered mental abuse.

    I'm sure you have documentation that teaching religion to children is abusive? Please provide that documentation. Show exactly how it hurts them.
    And in doing so, Mr. Sweden, please avoid bias by including all religions in this, such as Wicca, Islam, Judaism, etc., and not just Christianity.

    The thread happens to be about science. It was said in that context. But, yeah. I probably should have been more precise in my wording.

    "Liberal" means Democrat, and "conservative" means Republican. Since most scientists are Democrats, then that must mean that the "liberals" are in charge of science.

    And the science you want to reject is climate science, since it is telling you things you don't want to believe.

    An interesting thing about science: It really doesn't care what you believe, it just is what it is. If you don't want to accept it, it still works. You can totally reject the physics behind heavier than air flight, but the plane will still deposit you at your destination. It really doesn't care.
    An interesting thing about science is that it is never settled, and it always encourages further exploration and review.

    Wonder why that's missing in climate science?

    Perhaps because such an effort might just reveal things that people don't want known.

    Absolutely. But, I call things as I see them. Pretty difficult to deny the swing on the left involves a policy to destroy anything, or anyone who doesn't "toe the line".

    That where we are today. It's demonstrated here, in the news, and in the left's effort to silence opposition through any means necessary.

    That is a sad state of affairs to which the left has majority ownership.

    I didn't know that denial springs forth from a spirit of discover.

    The sematic BS you guys will tell yourself is amazing.

    No, not unless she has at least a Bachelor, preferably a Masters, in science. Min requirements for HS instructors is not a fascist concept.
