Most Democrats Need Remedial Science Education

One of the more amusing aspects of the current political scene is the claim of liberals to be “pro-science”–a claim that is often made in the context of the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming theory, which is anything but scientific. Science is a method, not a body of dogma, and I am not aware of anyone in public life who is anti-science.

Of course, before you can be pro- or anti-anything, you have to have some idea of what you are talking about. This is where most Democrats fall short, to an astonishing degree. A National Science Foundation survey conducted in 2012 found that 51% of Democrats do not know that the Earth goes around the Sun, once a year!

Keep that nugget in mind for the next time someone tries to tell you how smart liberals are.
