A Vote For Science

In yesterday’s YouTube video posted by Marty Chalfie, he referred to the fact that all three science Laureates for 2008 had endorsed Obama. Now it is official. From the Obama campaign; “With one voice, 65 of the nation’s greatest minds, the largest number of Nobel Laureates to ever endorse a political candidate for office, have encouraged the American public to vote Obama on November 4th.”

Martin Chalfie, and Roger Tsien won the prize in Chemistry with for their pioneering work on the use of green fluorescent protein. Yoichiro Nambu won the prize in Physics for his mathematical model, which unified the smallest building blocks of all matter and three of nature’s four forces in one single theory.

    I have no doubt that Krugman [Economics] is for Obama.

    Of course these bloodsucking “scientists” want Obama so he can grow the government and spend more money on them playing around in a lab for nothing

    I’m with McCain08.
    We can’t allow any more funding for scientists to mess around with living fetuses. We will need all the money we can allocate to fund a new inquisition, revoke evolution from all curricula across the US, and to revert Coppernicus’ heliocentric nonsense!

    With one voice, 65 of the nation’s greatest minds, the largest number of Nobel Laureates to ever endorse a charity, have encouraged the American public to contribute to this…

    Are people insane?

    We’re in a post craftperson society – everything around you has been developed by one of those so called “bloodsucking scientists” – from the meds that keep you healthy to the electronics that keep you entertained.

    Of course, I bet plenty of people in the US have no idea what the Nobel Prizes are..

    Very few scientists “mess around” with human fetuses, and those few don’t “mess around” with them. They do actual research.
    To deny the millions of other scientists who do other types of work the money they need to continue their good works shows that you are severely ignorant of what scientists do.
    Read up on it a little. Become informed, then you may speak.

    To quote Ian A. Adams: “Of course, I bet plenty of people in the US have no idea what the Nobel Prizes are..”
    Let’s you and I travel the rest of the world and ask everyone we meet if they know what the Nobel Prizes are. I’d bet that very few people anywhere know what they are.
    The people of the U.S. are no better and no worse than anyone else anywhere in the world.

    How is it that religious people believe that God will help them make the right choice. If YOU look at the candidates and their platforms, YOU will be making the decision. It’s YOUR vote. Please don’t let your imaginary friend decide for you. It is better to make an informed decision based on knowledge, then a decision based on delusions on a higher being.
