Raising hope

According to the Guardian.com “Conservative billionaires used a secretive funding route to channel nearly $120m (£77m) to more than 100 groups casting doubt about the science behind climate change.” Answers in Genesis is an organization that essentially tries to replace Darwinian Evolution with Intelligent Design. This organization is currently raising $29.5 Million to build Noah’s Ark to further mislead the young and the naive.

Here we can take a stand. We may not be able to match them dollar for dollar, but we can support an organization that answers this foolishness. The National Center for Science Education is at the forefront of the fight back against ignorance, pseudo science, & deception.

We have 6 weeks to meet our modest goal of $500.

The world will not wait

Global warming is a hoax, evolution is just a theory, the young earth was created less than 6 thousand years ago. These are beliefs held by many adults in the United States despite tremendous amounts of evidence and massive scientific consensus. It’s not surprising that “(t)he World Economic Forum ranks the United States 52nd in the quality of mathematics and science education, and 5th (and declining) in overall global competitiveness,” (http://www.lpfi.org). The world will not wait for us to catch up. We must raise our standards, and focus our efforts. We are at a tipping point.

We must fight for the survival of science, because failure to learn the truth about our world does not only mean that we will fall farther behind other countries in many respects, it also means that we will continually vote against our own best interests.
