Wendy Wright - USA should be Ashamed of having any Such Idiots in Leadership Positions.

I still cannot get over the interview between Richard Dawkins and Wendy Wright, published around Xmas time 2012, such stupidity and Irrationality displayed by Wendy rings sadly in my ears, I felt totally dismayed that any person leading a lobby group could be that STUPID.

I've witnessed such arrogant stupidity from general, poorly educated citizens who held basic desk and clerical jobs, many never having met nor studied science in their lives.

Every time I hear the word Creationist, I think of that interview, it still saddens me.

I have had many arguments with Creationists over the last 30 years.

Most of them were members of Creationist organizations and churches that society mostly ignores.

But, to witness it from somebody who had a powerful lobby group behind them, I find unbelievable.

So poorly educated, yet so very arrogantly opinionated about things she is entirely clueless on, which is anything to do with Science.

Watch it yourself and you can understand my dismay.

You can understand why I cannot understand how such a complete Loon managed to get into any form of powerful position like the leadership of Concerned Women for America.

Evidently they never judge their leadership on Intelligence, because that women has absolutely NIL Intelligence to offer anybody.

She and many leadership contenders like Sarah Palin, only prove my position that the USA and any country wanting good leadership, should have all prospective leaders undergo RQ or Rationality testing to qualify for leadership.

If they did this, then they could be more certain that their leaders are not going to goof off like Wendy, Sarah, George Bush and other Low RQ foolish leaders in the past.

Wendy would definitely flunk such a rationality test, because she Flunked basic rationality a dozen times in that debate. Certainly nowhere near Good Leadership Material.

It also demonstrates that the USA has a long way to go, before it can ever call itself an Intelligent Nation.

All it takes is one loon to bring out the support of the other loons and they think they can take over the government.

I think it a tactical mistake to conflate religiosity with stupidity.  Even if most stupid people are religious, it does not necessarily follow that most of the religious are stupid.  Some are religious for cynical social reasons -- attempts to manipulate the truly stupid and to ingratiate themselves with the religious majority (and this may cover most of US politicians and much of clergy), and then some are just unable to bring their intelligence to bear on overcoming early indoctrination.  That latter category could describe many people that I know here in the US Southeast, where religion is for a Southerner like water is for a fish -- the field in which they have always existed.  What can a fish out of water do but flop & gasp?

I know some highly intelligent people here in the South (yes, I know -- hard to believe) who are Christian fundamentalists.  For some of them, this didn't manifest until middle age or when they had children and were scared into abandoning their youthful bohemian attitudes.  They tend to compartmentalize and embrace something like Gould's "non-overlapping magisteria" to provide an illusion of order and tame uncomfortable dissonance.  This is almost always an unconscious reaction to the field in which they exist.  And, short of changing that field, it's the obviously successful strategy.  It is, in my opinion, intellectually dishonest, and I think that the smarter fundamentalists know this in their most unguarded moments.

I try not to engage my smart religious friends in discussion of religion.  For the dumb ones it doesn't much matter because their unshakeable faith insulates them and they go away feeling that I must be some devil worshipper.  Of course, when those dumb ones hold positions of power, that can be a problem, and so I don't much engage them either.  For the smarter ones, exposure to atheistic views triggers feelings of anguish and often retrenchment and retaliation.  I'm not going to "save" them any more than I could "save" a fish by encouraging it to become an air-breathing mammal.

I made it 5 minutes into this interview. Had to stop. Wendy Wright is a complete moron! Not credible on anything!

It's the tea baggers, backed by Karl Rove, who brought these nuts out of the woodwork.  They meant to take over the government and damned near succeded.  Did in fact wirh Bush2.  Remeber our scandal when the supreme court put him back into the white house.

Though, it is true that every time I now hear the word Creationist, I think of her, she took over from my previous brain dead loon image of Duane T. Gish (the Brain Dead, Frog Head), who was once my image of Creationism.

LOL Luara, Yes, I admit using her as leverage for taking a shot at Creationism.

She was listed as one of the top 100 most influential women in Washington in 2006, probably number 100.  Though there is a lot about her on the Internet, probably because she is such a complete Moron, she had taken that label and such limelight away from Sarah Palin.

she was considered as the most powerful spokesperson for women in her state

"considered", by who??? The "concerned" Women for America?

Comment by Dyslexic's DOG on November 17, 2013 at 4:15pm

According to one report, she was considered as the most powerful spokesperson for women in her state and was also considered as the highest ranking advocate for attacking Evolution.  Yet, she has no concept of science whatsoever.

This deems her as ludicrously unintelligent, because even a person of average intelligence would not deliberately, fervently and arrogantly argue about subjects they have absolutely no knowledge of.

My many atheist friends never argue with or about religion, because they admit a lack of knowledge of it.

I only argue against it, because I have studied theology, philosophy and the history of most common religions during my youth and early adult years.

I believe Sam Harris, when he states that there is no such thing as a good religion, because allowing moderates to preach religion freely in a society, camouflages and gives credence to Fundamentalism.

Though personally I don't mind Buddhism, Jainism nor Taoism, it's extremely unlikely any Buddhist, Jain nor Taoist Fundy will kill people for their cause.

Wendy's Lobby group should have removed her from office as soon as she started publicly debating about what she obviously has no knowledge of, for any leader to attempt such stupidity is an embarrassment for the entire organization.

Most leaders here in Australia are a reasonable degree more intelligent, we had one dumbo that tried to start her own parliamentary party and keeps trying, One Nation Party, yet she is regarded as a national idiot and will never really have any success. Pauline Hanson is regarded here by many as our dumbest parliamentary candidate ever, yet, even she is double the intelligence (rationality) of Wendy Wright, in that she will rarely argue about what she doesn't understand, a few of her concepts have national appeal to lay people, though she is regarded as not being intelligent enough to be a national leader.

We've never had a leader as dumb as George Bush, all our major party leaders have a higher degree of rationality, all are secularists.

Our conservative party which is currently in power, has no deeply underlying religious roots like GOP.

Our equivalent of GOP is only a minor party that will likely never see success, but they, like Pauline Hanson, keep trying anyway, which adds variety and amusement to the election process.

Comment by Sentient Biped on November 17, 2013 at 9:53am
If you google on "concerned women for america" it might provide some insight into thy they have a creationist in this position.

it's kind of like "Why do they always have to choose a catholic for pope?". :-)

I dont know how powerful they are. I think this is the group that one blogger always refers to as "concernsyipayed".
