Don't be an IDiot
Not to obsess on Matt Yglesias but... Mike the Mad Biologist (who, like me, hails from Long Island) takes Yglesias to task for dismissing the importance of learning about evolution anyway, claiming that it only betrays the elitism of liberals to get all worked up over it.
I'll give you the headings and you click through as you see fit:
- A basic understanding of evolution is important for all people, not just scientists.
- This is about education, not just politics.
- This is about education, not just politics, part deux.
- OK, it is partially about politics.
- OK, it is partially about politics, part deux.
- Yglesias is the elitist, not biologists and their supporters.
