Fundies 1, Science 0

Posted on Wed, Jul 19, 2006 at 5:37 PM

Got a spinal cord injury, or maybe a nice case of Alzheimer's? George Bush wants you to suffer. Because pandering to his anti-science fundie base and saving a bunch of cell clusters that are about to be destroyed anyway is WAY more important than, you know, helping people. Oh, and Karl Rove is lying to justify it.

This isn't the first time Shrub's ignored overwhelming scientific consensus, and I dare say it won't be the last. When Jerry Falwell tells him evolution and global warming are myths propagated by the Jesus-hating liberal media, he listens. When James Dobson says stem cell research will lead to â?¦ um, something really bad (I'm not sure what), he's all ears. These guys, after all, have much more expertise than the National Institutes of Science. They've read Genesis.
