Obama: Seperate Science and Religulous Insanity

I can remember when seeing a headline like that would be weird because no one would think that there would be a need for an American President to take that initiative because the separation of the two is self evident.
After eight years of superstition, fear, and rabid anti-scientific policies, just looking in the right direction (or the left if you are talking politically) is enough to make headlines.
Look at the first line from the article on CNN:
As President Obama reversed the Bush administration's limits on embryonic stem-cell research, he said scientific decisions must be "based on facts, not ideology."
Good gravy! Isn’t that a refreshing thing to hear from a president than the incoherent babblings of a dim wit?
Remember when Bush said, The jury is still out on evolution? In any other western democracy a politician saying that would never even be voted dogcatcher.

Maybe fear and superstition will finally burn itself out with proper leadership. It may take a long time, but at least we are once again heading in that direction.

  1. As long as religeon remains in the dark ages, seperation is necessary. It is a sad fact that spiritual beliefs are at odds with science. If god created everything, it stands to reason tht she intended for us to utilize all that science has to offer. If we were made in the image of god, it stands to reason that we are wired to create and recreate the world in a way that advances us into our full potential
