NASA: Dreamers vs. Pragmatics

It’s funny to watch the left scream about Trump, claiming that he will destroy NASA and bring down science to please his religious overlords.  Of course, the fact that Trump has already said that he wants to increase funding to NASA doesn’t seem to make a difference to them, they just know what he’s going […]

Planet of the Apes: An Apt Example

Recently, I sat down and watched all five of the original Planet of the Apes movies again.  It has been many years since I’ve seen them, but it immediately struck me that the plot of the first Planet of the Apes movie was very appropriate to the creation/evolution “debate”.

It’s Not Just The Religious

Sometimes it feels like the religious pretty much have a lock on making stupid claims and ridiculous arguments.  I know that’s not strictly true, but, at least from where I’m sitting, they seem to be a majority of really asinine claims. But occasionally, you run across someone else without a clue. Case in point, someone […]
