In her blog, Books by MSK, Melissa S. Kosciuszko says, “The Big Bang theory is a load of … well, you know what I mean.” In order to confirm exactly what she means, her blog says you must “Sign up to get blog updates and stuff” – so, I didn’t.
Though I disagree with her concerning the origin of the universe, I am impressed by the arrogance and apparent level of education of someone who believes that scientists including Albert Einstein are full of “... well, you know what I mean.”
Politicians who agree with Melissa offer more than an intellectual challenge. However, I am less interested in converting religious fanatics, Tea Party Christian fundamentalists, and Muslim terrorists, than I am in keeping them out of our government! And I am very interested in keeping religion out of politics—an interest I share with the founding fathers and writers of the Constitution —explained in the Federalist Papers.
In my lifetime, atheists have been killed and jailed for openly promoting their disbelief in God. Certain Muslim believers are willing to kill Christians, Jews, and atheists in order to establish Sharia law internationally. “Believe or Die” has been around for centuries; it is still a realistic threat.
Equally lethal, those politicians who deny climate change and myriad other science-based discoveries that affect our lives and the life of our planet cannot be allowed to run our government, educate our children, and control our economy. Politicians who disparage science—or just don't know any better—are not worthy to lead our country into the future. I hope we defeat any political candidate who says, in effect, the Big Bang theory is “a load of … well, you know what I mean.”
