Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

The 2012 Presidential Election

If the 2012 Presidential Election is between Obama and a creationist … can I move to Australia? (Canada is a bit too close.)

My Science Debate question might come in handy during the primaries.

Does it bother you in particular to be governed by an creationist? Or does your consternation stem from the fact that they may enact education policy to encourage the teaching of creationism?

What subject does creationism fall under? It always seems to be placed by default in science, since that's where evolution goes. What does it mean to "teach" creationism? Does it just mean that we educate on evidence against evolution?

I always considered evolution vs. creationism to be an unanswerable question of history and not worth arguing about. Reading Sanford's exposition on thermodynamics and physics was...mind-boggling.
