Science integrity is a National Defense issue

I don't know how to put it more bluntly than this, but the creationist/global warming-denialist knuckleheads making up the core of the GOP these days and passing crap like the so-called "Louisiana Science Education Law" (sic) are a present danger to the United States.,2706,Analysis-of-SB-733-LA-Science-Education-Act,Lousiana-Coalition-for-Science

This warplane was NOT designed by people who disregard science, folks:

Maj. Micah Fesler, a 433rd Weapons Squadron pilot, flies an F-22A “Raptor” from a Lockheed-Martin factory in Georgia to Nellis AFB, Jan. 9. This Raptor is the first to be delivered to the 57th Wing from Lockheed-Martin, and is scheduled to be used by the U.S. Air Force Weapons School for training of PhD-level instructor pilots.

This is the kind of weapon designed by people who have no use for science and believe the world was created 6,000 years ago:
