People cited violation of the First Amendment when a New Jersey schoolteacher asserted that evolution and the Big Bang are not scientific and that Noah’s ark carried dinosaurs. This case is not about the need to separate church and state; it’s about he need to separate ignorant, scientifically illiterate people from the ranks of teachers.


Republicans for Rape:They actually believe this shit!

I’m as pro-life as a person gets. You’re not going to have a truce.” Paul Ryan
(On why abortion should be banned even in the case of rape, incest or endangering a woman’s health. When asked about jailing women for having an abortion he said. “If it’s illegal, it’s illegal.”

“Rape is kinda like the weather. If it’s inevitable, relax and enjoy it.” Clayton Williams 1990 candidate for Texas governor.

“Concern for rape victims is a red herring because conceptions from rape occur with approximately the same frequency as snowfall in Miami.”
Federal Judge James Holms, a bush appointee

“The facts show that people who are raped – who are truly raped – the juices don’t flow, the body functions don’t work and they don’t get pregnant.”
Republican Rep. Stephen Friend

“I would hope that when a woman goes into a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape?”
Republican Sen. Chuck Winder

“First or all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare… if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut the whole thing down.”
Republic Rep. Todd Akin

Conservative “thought”.

E=mc² is Einstein’s famous formula which asserts that the energy (E) which makes up the matter in any body is equal to the square of the speed of light (c²) times the mass (m) of that body.[1] It is a meaningless, almost nonsensical, statement that purports to relate all matter to light. In fact, no theory has successfully unified the laws governing mass (i.e., gravity) with the laws governing light (i.e., electromagnetism), and numerous attempts to derive E=mc² in general from first principles have failed. Political pressure, however, has since made it impossible for anyone pursuing an academic career in science to even question the validity of this nonsensical equation. Simply put, E=mc² is liberal claptrap.

The Conservapedia, they really are fucking stupid.

From the hilarious site:

Teenagers of America,

it seems only natural that living in a free and bountiful America gives most young people reason to hope for a good life.

So, I ask you, why in the world would you study a subject that—

triples the possibility that you—or one of your teenage friends—will commit suicide?

encourages you to become a homosexual?

traps you in its “special” con game?

harms your abilities in good thinking? 

teaches you to be superstitious?

teaches you to believe that cartoons are representations of real life?

Well, Mr. or Miss Teenager of America, what subject could you possibly study that likely will put one or more of the above crimps into your life?

Please read on and learn!


Isn’t this enough?

Our story is the story of the universe. Every piece of everyone, of everything you love and everything you hate, of the thing you hold most precious, was assembled by the forces of nature in the first few minutes of the life of the universe, transformed in the hearts of the stars or created in their fiery deaths. And when you die, those pieces will be returned to the universe in the endless cycle of death and rebirth. What a wonderful thing it is to be part of that universe. What a story, what a majestic story. Sexy Sexy Brian Cox
