How to Destroy the US Economy

Anti-science ideology pushed by the GOP will hurt us economically.

I couldn’t agree with Barry Ritholtz’s argument more. Unfortunately, most rank-and-file Republicans and other potentially reasonable people think that the pandering to their religious nutcase fringe is essentially harmless. They’re wrong, and they’re going to drag us all down with them.

IMHO, the problem is that the desire for less scientific hand-waving (usually by under-qualified science teachers) is getting purposely misappropriated by people who *really* want to replace hand-waving that is fundamentally still correct with hand waving that has no basis in observed evidence.
Of course, then I realized that observed evidence is simply a trick played by various noodly appendages.
