May I make a suggestion? Why not push for a law that requires all politicians to take a (or a number of) science class(es) on the scientific method and a (or a number of) class(es) on sceptical thinking and pass an exam before they can RUN for office (not take office). That will insure that not only the politicians who hold office will have a basic understanding of science, but those who have tried to hold office. Most people think that teaching our kids is the best way to promote secularism, but I think we need more!!! What do you think?

2010 Gallup poll results found here: http://www.gallup.com/poll/145286/Four-Americans-Believe-Strict-Cre...

Now I would like to see a poll of the group that say that "God created humans in present form within the last 10,000 years" asking them what career they have chosen. WHAT A FUCKIN' SURPRISE IT WOULD BE IF THE MAJORITY OF THAT GROUP CHOOSE POLITICS?!?!?!?!?

Am I to understand that the fundamentalist or evangelical will never be influenced by anything other than the Bible and their leaders? What about the rest of the religious people? I believe there are many more of them than fundamentalists and evangelicals. I'll be back after I find some information on the number of fundamentals vs. religious people in the USA. Until then, just sit there and quake in your boots!!!!!

Taking a class is easy.  Doesn't mean it will change the fundamentalist or evangelical, or their Dominionist agendas.  It would just be a hoop to jump through, and they would gladly take one for the team if it paved the way to a political seat.
