Conservatives on science
There was a post at Ace's about some hub-bub over at the planet Mars. A sock-puppet therein writes:
We can at least tell that this guy is a Protestant Christian, and a Biblical literalist; and, like so many like him, he aims for the cheap-seats by declaring himself the champion of all "those who decorate Christmas trees".
And note that this was not even an evolution thread. This is not even a thread that affects the Bible.
I am wondering if such screeds are even worth refuting anymore. The problem I am having is, that I have been dealing with Conservatives' distrust of science for decades-plural now. I know it as willful ignorance, complacency and tribalism. If I refuted it, only liberals would applaud. And the Cons would just circle the wagons again.
There's no point. Screw it. I will simply continue not to vote for Conservative-endorsed candidates. That works for me.
