    For the 1st time in 175 years, the scientific magazine has opted to endorse someone for president. looks like the nerds are taking a stand against the children of belial?


    Scientific American backs Biden in its 1st presidential endorsement


    would you vote for a snake oil salesman or a doctor that has been trained in scientific methods?

    Well, the Pubs have been attacking science for quite some time now, so this doesn't surprise me one iota.

    This will just get a few more anti-science sheeples to make sure they get out and vote.

    No one could blame them when they see the president silencing scientists, altering research reporting for his own gain, denying the critical science of climate change placing the world at risk, and going against scientific advice in every campaign rally. They can only imagine what is next - detaining scientists who disagree with his opinions in correctional camps to recognize their errors?

    Science doesn't have a political bias. Science only becomes "political" when people deny it. In this sense, if it weren't "biased" it would cease to be scientific.

    He does not think scientists know anything compared to him. HIs answer it will get cooler is beyond understanding. Yes in the next several months it will get cooler then the next summer it will get even hotter than this year if we do not change.

    Would it make more sense for them to back the candidate with an anti-science agenda? :rolleyes:

    It makes perfect sense for a science magazine to fight against scientific illiteracy. I don't want to see my dopey country get even dopier, either.

    Its called buying the endorsement.

    Wonder how much they paid executive staff editors and managers over there to run it?

    You obviously have been fooled, and obviously you're gullible and easy. Trump is the one denying science. Almost everyone in his cabinet and Mike Pence are fundamentalist Christian that in some way reject science.
