Here Is the Worst Anti-Science BS of 2016 | Mother Jones

And I was expecting something so much better from our leaders than 2nd grade lack of comprehension of known proven science.   Why is it that people who have no training in a subject, no qualifications for investigating a subject, no education at all in sciences, suddenly think they are much more knowledgeable about a subject than those with the education and skill who have been studying these subjects for their careers?    Yes I can see how a congressman with no graduate degree can challenge a PHD in a subject based on a blog post written by a high school dropout which they based on a conspiracy website.   People keep allowing this stuff with no challenge and no threat to the congress people.   Now they are staffing most of the posts of the incoming administration.   Well our time here on this planet is about done if these deniers get their way.  Let the planet heal from us and the next species will raise up.  Maybe they can get their populations to look after the earth and to understand evolution.  Hugs

Donald Trump wasn’t the only politician who lied about science this year.

  1. We have this backlash in our society too – you may know already it – The new rightwing- racist-party of AfD – Alternative for Germany. Its supporterss are mainly deprived Middleclas-people who don’t beleave in the conclusions of Science, cause they beleave, that the elite in Science is the reason for taking away the influende middleclass-people had in the past and that science is responsible for taking away the wealth, middle-Class people had in former time.
    The people can’t be reached by any reasoning. They deny scientifical Facts by simply calling them Fake. This is most easy to see, when they deny, that there i s even a climate-change – and that it is mostly manmade.
    This unscientifical look at the World around us serves the thinking of the churches with their bible-cult. – and it finally serves the Rich in their fight for more and more money to have at their disposal – and more Mony means more and more influence on society.
    Must be so that this is a big plan from conservative think-tanks.

    • I agree Miles. Well said. It seems the intolerant and the uneducated are taking over the world. This push is coming from the major religions, fed money from these religious people. We can only stand strong and firm until this onslaught washes away. Hugs
