More on the War Against Science

A recent Gallup poll show that a majority of Republicans in the U.S. do not believe the theory of evolution. This is just more evidence that reason and many of the powers that be in this country are not compatible. It's funny that other theories that are just as established aren't under fire such as gravity and the fact that the earth orbits the sun (oh wait). Wherever science doesn't match a strict world view (whether it is religion-based or greed-based), it's alway seems to be the Republicans fighting reason and science. This anti-intellectualism quite worries me.
