Sweet Jesus, I Hate Anti-Science Idiots Who Claim to Speak for Science

to: george.deutsch-1@nasa.gov

I just read about your attempts to stifle science education at the link below and elsewhere.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/04/science/04climate.html?_r=2&oref=slogin&oref=slogin

You're becoming a bit of a minor celebrity.

I'm an engineer, and find your anti-science attitude profoundly offensive. Furthermore, you are an idiot. Evidently, you don't understand the meaning of the word "theory", as in Newton's Gravitational THEORY. If you were an average Joe political hack, I'd describe you as "ignorant." But to take a job in a science organization when you have such a profound lack of understanding of science -- that means you're an idiot. A world-class, dyed-in-the-wool idiot.

Has anyone ever mentioned to you that in the world of science and technology, we practice meritocracy? So, don't even think of accusing me of being uncivil. Here's the deal -- if you step unto this turf, and cling to your ignorance, you're going to be called out, idiot.

Please save yourself and this fine country further embarrassment, and resign. Perhaps you would be able to find employment with your intellectual equals at the Discovery Institute (for Latter Day Stupidity). Have a nice day, moron.
