← U.S. State Science Standards Are ‘Mediocre to Awful’

The Chinese have no philosophical problems teaching Science and what Science has to say about the real world as it actually is whether it is the Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection or anything else.

The US, by contrast, has introduced eight anti-evolution bills in six state legislatures in the past year to reassure the cretinous, pig-ignorant luddites that their know-nothing stupidity is equal to the intelligence, qualifications and expertise of its scientists.

Little wonder that China has far more scientists in proportion to their population than the US and that China is all set to completely eclipse the US in scientific and technological progress.

It will seem that the US "leaders" pandering to the religious lobby has sown the seeds of its own terminal decline.
