A dark age is a comin'

US PoliticsI think that western society is heading towards a new dark age. This story about a NASA PR man shows the lengths that the Bush Administration will go to pander to the theo-conservative elements in the Republican party. The erosion of science by religious zealotry will eventually result in a new dark ages. A time when decisions are made by one of the most powerful men in the world based on mythology and not fact is upon us and being forced on the people of the United States.

The problem, of course, is that many of the newly elected Conservatives here in Canada hold many of the same views as Bush and his cohorts. That means that soon in Canada, grants to research that doesn't follow what some ancient tract has to say will dry up. Actual advancement in science and knowledge will grind to a halt, and then slide backwards. Hopefully here in Canada these wingnuts will scare the voter in non-Alberta Canada away from the Tories for years.

The problem is, of course, that the US public needs to tire of Bush and his ilk in sufficient numbers that even vote rigging can't win the GOP an elections. How long this will take is the question. The mid-term elections will be interesting for sure.

I started suspecting this <a href="http://crystalgaze2.blogspot.com/2004/11/

More and more has happened since to reinforce that suspicion.
