neil_degrasse_tysonScience is the new theme I’ll be sneaking into TheLeftWinger.

Because science is the tool we can you to clear the fog of mystification and obscurantism that permeats so much of our lives.

Also, because I’m love biology and am reading a quite interesting book about biology and Marxism – Thank you AKPress fuck the fourth sale!

Free Neil deGrasse Tyson quote:

Science is a philosophy of discovery. Intelligent design is a philosophy of ignorance. You cannot build a program of discovery on the assumption that nobody is smart enough to figure out the answer to a problem. Once upon a time, people identified the god Neptune as the source of storms at sea. Today we call these storms hurricanes. We know when and where they start. We know what drives them. We know what mitigates their destructive power. And anyone who has studied global warming can tell you what makes them worse. The only people who still call hurricanes acts of God are the people who write insurance forms.

I love this man. Even though he killed Pluto.
