SEED Endorses Obama

The editors of SEED magazine have endorsed Barack Obama for President. A fine choice, in my opinion.

Far more important is this: Science is a way of governing, not just something to be governed. Science offers a methodology and philosophy rooted in evidence, kept in check by persistent inquiry, and bounded by the constraints of a self-critical and rigorous method. Science is a lens through which we can and should visualize and solve complex problems, organize government and multilateral bodies, establish international alliances, inspire national pride, restore positive feelings about America around the globe, embolden democracy, and ultimately, lead the world. More than anything, what this lens offers the next administration is a limitless capacity to handle all that comes its way, no matter how complex or unanticipated.

Sen. Obama’s embrace of transparency and evidence-based decision-making, his intelligence and curiosity echo this new way of looking at the world. And that is what we should be weighing in the voting booth. For his positions and, even more, for his way of coming to them, we endorse Barack Obama for President of the United States.

Well said! Makes me proud to be a ScienceBlogger.

    I will be praying the rosary to our Blessed Mother daily for candidates McCain-Palin. They are willing to stand up for the sanctity of LIFE, and therefore as Catholics we must prudently vote for those supporting

    You cannot be a Christian and Pro-Abortion. When voting for Obama-Biden you are casting your vote for a party of death. This ticket does not stand up for the UNBORN, and will enforce laws to reverse the ban on Partial-birth Abortions, as well as participate in other horrendous acts against the UNBORN.

    Please join me in “Praying for Life.”

    God Bless America, and God have mercy on us all.
