Fundamentalist Christianity

Republicans And Science: Repudiated In Favor Of Religion!

The Republican party has been outrageous in its refusal to accept science, and instead back religion as the basis of understanding the natural world!

It is embarrassing how the Darwinian evolution concept has been abandoned in favor of “creationism”, which teaches that the world is six thousand years old and that dinosaurs walked the earth with mankind! 🙁

It is also beyond belief that, despite the evidence of global warming, such as the highest recorded temperatures in the past decade and more, and the rapid melting of glaciers, and so much other scientific evidence that should give us pause and make us want to work toward the dangers of climate change, instead every Republican nominee for the Senate repudiates the idea!

But they all invoke religion, despite the concept of separation of church and state that is part of our Constitution! And realize that the Republican party in the years after World War II and through the 1970s hardly ever invoked religion to the extent they do now, and it is only since the rise of the Christian Coalition in the late 1970s, that science has come under such bitter attack! 🙁

Instead of the Republican party living in modern, changing times, instead it has buried its head in the sand and promoted fundamentalist Christianity as the new science! This is indeed a sad commentary on a party that wishes to govern in the 21st century! 🙁
