Actually I don't think it is. It has to do with people being ignorant and ignoring facts.


Like the people who blame global warming on man and want us to drive bicycles?

Like people who want to ban guns and would rather us fight off criminals with sticks.


Like people who want to produce electric cars that no one wants and think windmills can replace oil for power?

Like people who want to use up our food supplies to make ethanol that uses more power to make than it produces?


Like people who believe food stamps stimulate the economy?


Like people who want to limit sugary drinks to 16oz for our own good?


Like people who say," we have to pass a bill to know what's in it"?


Ignorance is in the eye of the beholder.

You're right. Skimming isn't going so well today.

However, your reference to "liberal science" is a bit bizarre and not obviously related to the original post. Especially since witchcraft and evolution denial are both superstition that is easily refuted by evidence.

sure it was. the original post included a jab at people who don't believe in evolution, while ignoring the people on the other side who believe in tons of stupid shite.

so are the negative effects of GMOs that are the same as superstition

so are the superstitions of the OWS idiots

some other examples were posted in here

"Liberal science" sounds like something 2013 made-up-Jesus would say.

None of these are science. I agree that most of these are as idiotic as evolution denial. They are also politics. And politics is even more idiotic than evolution denial.

pretty much every group relies on junk science to justify some of their beliefs. that kind of shite is why we separate ourselves into groups

when dealing with making people take your side, everything becomes "politics"

global warming issues are science-related

the issues relating to oil/energy adoption are science-related

GMOs/organic food issues are CERTAINLY science-related

etc etc etc

There are people who willfully ignorant. These are the so called young earthers.

Many of the people you speak about are misguided or pushing an agenda that benefits them.

And many of the people who follow them are ignorant of the facts or perhaps even the facts are still not known.

The things you point out are a very different situation than the so called young earthers. These are true believers who wake up every morning and have to ignore things every day to blindly believe in what they believe.

outside of working in a field like geology, i don't see how they'd run into that much evidence D2D

dude, the ows is simply the have nots attacking the haves. It happens all the time when the gap gets to be too large. It has been seen time and time again.

They want more yet are not willing to work for it.

This could be called laziness. It is a very different thing from the young earthers.

Let's pretend that those are actually based on real science. How is that related to evolution denial? It's definitely not relevant to the witch burning.

How can they be so ignorant even today? Are they just less intelligent? Is there any other viable explanation?

The scientific method, interestingly enough. This is one of science's virtues.

Anyway, I don't really see how evolution is a "liberal vs conservative issue." Obviously people of all sorts of ideological persuasions mistake bizarre things for science.

I gues we should trust the Scientists. Certainly not the politicians, lawyers or preachers.........

We should trust but verify.

I'm almost certain that Revelator has said that he is a young earther in the past.

Walking on a riverbed and seeing a fossil.

Seeing the grand canyon.

Reading anything in the press that has anything to do with science/religion/history even peripherally.

Watching a movie.

Hell, whenever any period in history is mentioned that goes back more than 6000 year, you have to ignore it. How many times to you hear about light years away and how mnay light years away such and such thing is? If that thing happened at a distance of more than 6000 light years, well they are hosed.

Any sort of dinosaur outside of cartoons often mentions age. Whenever something is dated with a radioisotope, bam, can't believe in that.

When you hear of about an animal that is a relative from such and such, well that can't be. Because God just made them that way.

Seriously?

Day to day these people ignore so much stuff it baffles the mind.

Think about it. You have to believe that the world poofed into existence 6k years ago. It is a staggering amount of information that you have to ignore.

Jurasic Park? Well heck, those dinosaurs lived with humans and were around until a few thousand years ago.

i don't think this is THAT common. how many times have you done this?

people of all persuasions ignore what "the press" says due to propaganda/personal ideology

that honestly doesn't come up much in D2D life. think about it.

light years are a term of measurement, and your 2nd point is wrong

again, these aren't exactly a daily occurrence, either
