It's one thing to be sure of something. It's another thing to be sure of something and have data.

That another thing is "better".

I get rather annoyed when I hear ingrates badmouthing "frivolous" or "unnecessary" science.

No; it's all worthwhile. Something "everybody already knows" ain't worth shit without the data.

This is indeed true - I just prefer making a snarky comment now and again Wink

Yes, but tracking bear scat is actually a very useful ecological data point.

When you teach children that magic and psychic powers and talking animals and magical floods and angels exist. THEN teach them that everything their parents, pastor, and the bible tells them is to NEVER EVER be questioned or taken a second thought of, even for a micro second.

Why the fucking hell is anypony surprised about this outcome? What did everypony THINK would happen about this?

This is what Bill Nye and Richard Dawkins and Sagan warned us about would happen.


My Youtube channel if anyone is interested.

Alas! The House of Israel is a wicked and perverse generation, and has not listened to the latest crop of prophets!

I love this study. I think it's important.

I live in a southern state, USA, and boy do southerners love that old time religion.

Children in southern American are shown to receive a much poorer quality of education than children in the rest of the country.

Maybe, just maybe, all it takes to grow up to be a special kind of "dumb ass" (a southern colloquialism) is to be a child growing up with fundamental Christian parents living in a primarily Christian fundamentalist community being taught by a Christian fundamentalist teacher Shocking.

And this is why the southern states are in the forefront campaigning against the Common Core - their students can't measure up.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

It's not much better in the Midwest. Lots of Mormons and Catholics in st louie. Did you backwards southern dipshits know Jesus was born right here in Missouri? Same birthplace of one Sheryl Crow.

I lived in central Indiana as a child. We were one of the few families who did not go to church. Lots of private god schools for the financially well off. But it was never forced upon me until I moved here.

Point is it doesn't really matter where it's most concentrated, but rather the ripple effect it projects. Not everyone from the south is a fanatic. Nor is everyone from there as retarded as the people that are representing them in DC. This applies to all regions.
