3 Ṭeveth 5768: Ḥanukkah


Worthy cause of the day: Sciencedebate 2008. It is important for people who make decisions to understand the bases on which they make their decisions, especially when the decisions will affect human lives. Consider the damage done by George W. Bush, who displays no understanding of science, and his policies made on bases which have little or no resemblance to reality: ignoring global warming, poor energy policy, sex education which does not work, hampering of stem cell research, aiding and abetting terrorism, voting systems which are unfair and less secure than ever, hampering the FDA and EPA, crushing national debt, a war without a realistic endgame strategy, etc. We cannot afford to have another president who lives in a fantasy world. We need someone who pays attention to evidence and reason and tries to deal with reality as it is, not as he or she wants it to be. A debate between the candidates on science would give us some idea how much they are actually living in the real world, so please sign the petition. Thanks in advance.
