    Okay, there is one thing that really bothers me about much of this “Bush is anti-science” stuff, people often cite Bush’s philosophy of anti-science with his views on Stem Cell research.

    The problem is, whether or not to support Stem Cell Research is more of a moral question then a science question.

    (Not saying knowledge about the field is irrelevant though, knowing an embryo has no nervous system,hence no brain, is rather important)

    Whether or not to support Stem Cell Research is more of a moral question then a science question, especially when the science is unproven.

    I am a traveller from the year 2011! How is that pro-science president of yours doing.. You know, the one who trashed NASA and dumped any future space program… USA… Once a shining beacon to all of the free world… Now being reduced to a third world tin-pot republic under the guise of “PROGRESSIVISM”…
