Low interest in science spells decline for U.S.

Scientists warn that the U.S. is losing its edge due to a loss of interest in science.

Science has taken a backseat to politics. Anti-intellectualism has been on the rise for years. Schools are trying their darndest to include creationism in their curricula.

There's no wonder children are confused and avoid science.

I remember biology in high school. No mention of the word evolution. Of course, my teacher was a strong Baptist and I attended a private school.

It wasn't until I got to college that I learned of evolution. I had plenty of catching up to do otherwise I would have looked stupid.

All this because someone wanted to further their religious agenda at my expense.
