Ted Cruz Understands Science Less Than The Average Kindergarten Student

It’s not a shock that the Republican Party has a huge problem when it comes to climate change science. It’s not so much that they don’t believe in it, but that candidates like Ted Cruz rabidly deny climate change because it is what their campaign contributors and their base want to hear. According to a […]

Not One GOP Mayor Attends Climate Change Summit With Pope Francis

Pope Francis recently released an encyclical calling climate change “one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.” As expected, Republicans lashed out at Pope Francis, and presidential candidate Rick Santorum chided him by saying that Pope Francis should “leave science to the scientists.” There are few issues that Republican politicians from right-wing to moderate […]

6 Poll Results That Show Exactly Why Aliens Refuse To Talk To Us

During a discussion with a colleague of mine today I got reminded of all of the ridiculous things I’ve seen polls tell me that Americans actually believe. And while some of these polls might reveal that “only” 4% of voters believe that “lizard people” are trying to control society by gaining political power (no, that’s […]

How Neil deGrasse Tyson Made Science Cool Again

By now, unless they’ve been watching “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” on repeat, most Americans are familiar with Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson – especially after his appearance on Fox’s “Cosmos” TV series last season. Dr. Tyson recently riled up the religious right on Christmas Day with a number of posts on Twitter basically pointing out […]

The Consequences Of Voters Staying Home: Ted Cruz Will Now Oversee Science and NASA in Senate

It’s becoming too common of an occurrence that when I run across a real story concerning something conservatives are doing, I have to ask myself whether or not it’s real or satire. It’s like a line I often use to “troll” conservatives I run across, “There’s no reason for progressives to lie about conservatives, the […]

“Food Babe” Hammered by Actual Scientists for Blatantly Fear-Mongering and Misleading Public

I have to admit, I really don’t care much about the GMO vs. anti-GMO debate. The way I look it is both sides have valid points on some levels and both sides often ignore facts when it doesn’t suit their personal feelings on this issue. When it comes right down to it, I’ve known people […]

Rick Santorum Proposes Idea That Could Lead to Science Being Banned in Public Schools (Video)

In a statement that should shock absolutely no one, former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum believes that secularism should be considered a religion so that it can be banned in schools. While speaking with American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, Santorum said, “I think we should start calling secularism a religion. Because if we did, then we could […]

Obama Crushes Radical GOP, Says Liberals Aren’t the Ones Who Deny Facts and Science (Video)

Once President Obama’s time in office is up, one of the main things I’ll had wished he had done more often is call out Republican nonsense during his presidency.  No other president has ever faced such blatant obstruction and sabotage like he has, yet far too often he’s sat back, letting Republicans control the message. […]

Neil deGrasse Tyson Hammers ‘Fear Factor’ of GMO’s: ‘I Don’t Have a Problem’ with them, ‘So Chill Out’

Knowing what I know about the debate over GMO’s and modified foods, I’m sure the comments made by famed astrophysicist and Cosmos host Neil deGrasse Tyson will bring about an interesting discussion. I’ve never really waded into the waters of the debate over GMO’s.  Mainly because it seems that it just causes people to shout at […]

Rush Limbaugh Brags That He’s Responsible for the Dumbing Down of America

Nothing quite like one of the most well known conservatives in media trying to take credit for the dumbing down of America.  But that’s what happened recently when Rush Limbaugh boasted about the fact that the United States leads the world in climate change deniers. Limbaugh said, “Fifty-four percent of Americans agreed with the statement, ‘The climate […]
