    You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. All the time follow your heart. "Every man serves a useful purpose A miser, for example, makes a wonderful ancestor." by Laurence J. Peter.

    Scientists do not think they know everything. They develop a theory, and then attempt to disprove it.

    There has been a centuries-old war on science since long before the days of the Inquisition. Zealous power-hungry holdouts from a bygone era, known as the religious right today, are the folks who deny climate change, support reckless deregulation that nearly took the banking industry to its knees, and declare a war against anyone who does not conform to a narrow ideology. In their world-view "the" bible contains the answer to every question. The religious right tactics are to insult, label, trivialize and resort to outright name-calling. It is all a big psychological power-control smokescreen that is a distraction from an otherwise productive civilization to advance and move forward. Unfortunately, some of the pious will not leave the dark past except through childish kicking and screaming and do everything possible to discredit or denigrate science.

    Religious-extremism is for slackers who failed science class – who cannot think for themselves, but are great at parrotting divisive ideological propaganda – and who cannot sit at the back of the short-bus where they belong, and think that they should have the authority to be driving and directing all traffic.

    There is no war on science. There is not enough being done to promote science and the pursuit of knowledge just for the sake of knowing. There are more reality shows that History on the History Channel. There are too few heroes of science to go along with the Lebron James, Rick Harrisons, or Kim Khardashians. Not enough scientist showing science is great and has value and is part of the every day lives of citizens. Not enough people saying science is easy and attainable.

    People like to think they know everything and most people are dumb. That's pretty much it.
