You see what you want to see, Ted, and only what you want to see.

I must admit, though ... you've shown improvement from the old days. Your attacks on science no longer include minstrel dialect jokes.

Be fair. I don't think there's any FR policy on virtual cross dressing.

Besides, I'm thinking medwendyved would show a bit more flash:

Even the Roman Catholic Church welcomes discussions and exchanges on Galileo.

That might be true now, but not then. Galileo finished his life under Catholic Church house arrest.

No your premise is flawed, you’re confusing education with liberal indoctrination and vice versa.

And all the your projections in the world about your own ignorance can’t mask it.

No, you are confusing education with liberal indoctrination. You have yet to support your premise that increased educational attainment leads to political liberalism.

However my statement is absolutely supported by the evidence. The more educated you are, the less likely you are to be a creationist.

Thus creationism is the refuge of the uneducated and ignorant.

Cretarded sources depend upon the ignorance of their target audience.

Around here, this "evidence" thingie is unknown, unwanted, and most asssuredly not understood.

“No, you are confusing education with liberal indoctrination”.

I know you are but what am I? That’s all you’ve got AGAIN?

Ohhh...K...

Meanwhile,

It’s not like people haven’t seen your tired argument destroyed about 100 times over (and over again)...indeed the more educated one is (self-educated or whatever it takes), the more likely they are to see through the liberal indoctrinations masquerading as education, keeping in mind of course that a liberal piece of paper from say Yale or Harvard does not necessarily mean one IS educated much less intelligent.

And even if you were even remotely lukewarm, one glance at this site indicates scientists bright enough to recognize the liberal cult of evolution for what it is, are indeed “educated” at Johns Hopkins, Princeton, Harvard, MIT, etc.

www.dissentfromdarwin.org

BTW a valid argument/observation is that the more conservative one is, the more they understand what a fraud evolution is.

And what people here understand is how ridiculous you liberals look on FR when you let your guard down on various other dead giveaways.

I said that the more educated one is the less likely they are to be a creationist.

Implying that education is liberal indoctrination is not in any way a “debunking” of the simple fact that....

The more educated one is, the less likely they are to be a creationist.

That is simply the truth. A truth that, like most of science, creationists would rather ignore than deal with.

Creationism is the refuge of the ignorant and uneducated.

Acceptance of a scientific theory based upon evidence is not liberalism. Adherence to your favorite ideology based upon feeling and emotion despite all facts to the contrary is liberals; thus YOU tpanther are just like a liberal.

Ignorance is not a conservative trait, and education level is not a predictor of political ideology.

Ignorance tends to be a liberal trait, but ignorance can be in other areas than just head knowledge.

In light of that, level of education does seem to be connected to political ideology. Look at the big name universities, like the ones that promote evolution, atheism, etc and tell me the political leanings of the majority of the professors. We've even had evos on this forum admit that either most of the scientists they know, or scientists in general tend to be liberal.

While theoretically, there should be no correlation between level of education and morals and political leanings, it does seem to exist, as evidenced by the universities.

Too much indoctrination goes on in universities, and public schools, and not enough passing on of knowledge and practical application of same.

The more one is indoctrinated by liberal teachers and professors, the less likely one is to be a creationist.

That you can’t tell the diference between education and liberal indoctrination is hardly surprising.

The truth shall set you free.

But the truth will not demand you recognize it...

you have to actually educate yourself to recognize it.

Projecting your ignorance just isn’t getting it done.

Science isn't either liberal or conservative, it is just a body of knowledge and a system for gaining that knowledge.

You have yet to demonstrate that educational attainment correlates with liberal politics.

You are a one trick pony that's ‘trick’ is to scream “liberal” at everything that you disagree with, like learning.

You continue ignoring that science has been hijacked just like liberals hijack

politics
government
journalism
law

nothing is off limits, including science.

I understand your disability and projections. as do most freepers.

Stating something is true is not the same as providing evidence that it is true.

Science is science, it has not been “hijacked” just because it disagrees with your theology.

You have yet to show any evidence that increased educational attainment correlates with increased political liberalism.

However, the less educated one is, the more likely they are to be a creationist.

Thus creationist sources “play to their audience”, the ignorant.

The evidence is before you. No one can force you to accept it though.

Plodding through life on FR masquerading as something you’re not is your right.

But understand it is equally the right of others to expose you.

People are free to make buffoons of themselves, and you’re free to continue your buffoonery on FR.

The evidence is quite conclusive, creationism is the refuge of the uneducated. The more educated one is the less likely they are to be a creationist.

It may be beyond your limited understanding of the world to accept that all conservatives are not creationists, but the only deception is your constant lie of screaming “liberal” to any disagreement.

Buffoonery is exactly how I would describe your posting style.

Saying “projection” and “liberal” to every argument makes one assume that this is a reflexive action on your part not requiring any thought, and a good thing that, for I think if any though were required for your posts you wouldn't bother as it is beyond your limited abilities.

Once again it is YOU who cannot tell the difference, and have provided zero evidentiary support that attaining degrees correlates in any way to political leftism.

I don't see how being taught Molecular Genetics by Valery Soyfer, the noted anti-Communist, who said in class that “I bless every day Ronald Reagan in my prayers” was in any way shape or form “liberal indoctrination”.

He taught me mostly Molecular Genetics, and there is nothing political about it or any other scientific theory.

You should take the time to educate yourself.

But beware, the more education you attain the less likely you are to remain a creationist.

But I guess there is little actual fear of you learning anything. You have protected yourself quite well so far.

"Incidentally, Grove City College is one of the handful of colleges I know ( the other being Hillsdale College ) that REFUSES to take any Federal money whatsoever. Students who enroll and do not have enough money for their tuition are aided via PRIVATE scholarship grants. They don't want any government interference in what they do and how they educate their students."

Another reason for the separation of school and state.
