Climate Talk’s Cancellation Splits a Town
i don't often post a request to read something in the newspaper, but this is worth reading.
conservative citizens objected to a talk at a local high school by a nobel laureate no less, because they don't agree with what he says. and the school superintendent obliged by canceling the talk.
here's the article from today's new york times. it makes for a sobering read:
you have to presume that evolution and the big bang receive similar levels of support, no matter what evidence is presented contrary to what the bible says (like fossil records and cosmic background radiation)
ignorance is bliss.
