Don't forget the ongoing GMO farce.Leftwing science – Part 1 http://www.jpattitude.com/110519.php
Hearing liberals talk about science is flat-out funny – almost as funny as watching them stumble over numbers. In both arenas, their assertions and beliefs are often ludicrous (remember when Obama thought ten thousand people had died in a Kansas tornado?), but there’s an important difference: liberal miscomprehension of numbers involves intellectual deficiency, whereas their silliness in science stems from moral deficiency.
The left cynically and ruthlessly misuses science as a vehicle for political propaganda.
There is a fundamental reason why leftwing political ideology leads to bad science. Collectivism is, by definition, anti-God,
and without the absolute truth which God represents, the solid foundation necessary for scientific advancement is missing. No need to take that statement on faith (pardon the pun)– there are studies with empirical evidence. Baylor University released a study in 2008 showing that traditional Christian religion greatly decreases belief in pseudo-scientific nonsense like palm reading, astrology, and paranormal phenomena.
The magazine Skeptical Inquirer published a similar study in 1980, showing that irreligious college students were far more likely to believe in pseudo-scientific crap. Paraphrasing Jeff Foxworthy, if you have ever asked a ghost what its sign is, you might be a liberal.
Look at areas where political differences cause the most friction – Darwinism, global warming, the beginning of life in the womb, education, DDT – and you will see the war between atheists and believers raging. No scientific theory is more important to the left than Darwinism, because evolution overtly replaces God with random chance and demotes Man to one among millions of co-equal species. Liberals become enraged if parents merely ask that contrary evidence be presented to children in public schools.
Over and over again, leftwing science is proven wrong by time and facts. After decades of insisting that embryos were not alive and could feel no pain, ultrasound pictures showed the truth: their hearts start beating in the first two or three weeks and by their reaction to stimuli we can see they feel something.
