    Not really. If we did, I would not have said "it does not make sense."

    If science was dogmatic, we would still have scientists touting the Phlogiston Theory and Balancing the Humours...ignorance of history is not a virtue...

    Thank Goodness we have a TEA Party, that Understands Science

    Yale Professor 'Embarrassed' to Discover Tea Party Members are Scientifically Literate

    Unlike the Liberal MMGW hoaxmongers that don't know the difference in Natural and Man Made Events.

    Religious belief is the very example of the definition of the term indoctrination...

    Actually the Bible says the earth was a sphere 3-4000 years ago Isaiah 40:22 , and the Bible also said the earth was supspended in space 5000 years ago Job 26:7.

    It was science of the time that claimed the Earth was flat and earth sat on the back of a large animal.

    I have the greatest respect for Dr. Tyson. He turned me on to amateur astronomy and I will forever thank him for that.

    Regards,

    Fake Factoids.

    A circle is two dimensional, and flat. Not a sphere.

    As for Job, "Stretching the North over the empty place and hanging the earth upon nothing" Is a stretch too far.

    You, along with most of the extremist right have been hoodwinked into thinking man has no hand in climate change. This lie is perpetuated by big business, who fear this will cut into their profit.
    How does it feel to be used?

    My eldest daughter is a research chemist and where she works has been horrified at how little the ones coming in on entry level jobs know. Many of them have had barely any lab time at all which is essential to working in a professional lab. Over half of the science majors in colleges have never stepped foot in a school lab. Seems many school districts have taken out the labs because they are expensive and the liability insurance has gotten too high to afford. One of her colleagues is from Finland and they begin working in a lab around age 10. Massive difference.
