It is a bit absurd that some democrats are acting like it is only ever Republicans that deny science/facts/studies.

Democrats, like Republicans, deny science/facts/studies when it suits their political needs.


Many Democrats/liberals on this very board/across the country:

-Deny the Science that IQ is in good part genetically heritable.

-Deny the Science that men are more likely to have both low-IQs and high-IQs than women (hence why there are more males in special education and more males that are geniuses), due to genes correlated to intelligence being located on the X Chromosome.

-Deny the Science that there are genetic traits that correspond to personality and even being predisposed to more violence.

-Deny the science that genetics does play a part in elite athletes (one resident democrat of this board argued that genetics don't play a part in elite athletes and was so ignorant of science used Jesse Owen's long leg bones as proof --- which of course is determined by genetics).

-Ignore the majority of scientists on nuclear energy.

-Ignore studies on the long-term (lack of) effectiveness of Head Start.

-Deny the statistics of the correlation between SAT scores and college success.

-More likely to ignore the science of vaccines.

-More likely to ignore the science on GMOs.

-About twice as likely to believe in ghosts

-About twice as likely to believe in astrology

-About twice as likely to believe in voodoo

-Deny economist's lower (and more realistic) projections when it comes to the gains of investments within a pension.

Etc...

If those statements are supposed to be anything but unsupported opinions, cite the source(s).

Democrats only believe science that they like, they ignore, impugn, disregard science that doesn't support their ideology. Republicans may also in some circumstances but Democrats are far more prone to ignore science because Liberalism is essentially a religion whose tenets cannot be challenged or else be attacked with religious fervor.

-Deny certain violent crime statistics

-Deny that being overweight is generally an unhealthy state

-Pretend that there are dozens of genders

(I'm not saying all Democrats, liberals, or leftists do any of the above -- but some do)

Yes, he could be manipulated by the Priests of the religion (Media and University Professors) into being a suicide bomber to defend his religion of liberalism.
