Now that you are almost four years old, and can read and write your own name, your Nana has some things to say to you. Maybe you will not be able to find this site untill you get your own laptop, but it is here waiting.
I like to read the New York Times, and quote some opinion makers. Today, June 9,2014, Paul Krugman talks about the political right holding a toxic mix of ideology and anti intellectualism. Another columnist ,Charles M. Blow explains this anti intellectualism by quoting figures from an opinion poll. In America, 28% of people think that the Bible is the actual word of god.
47% think that the Bible is the inspired word of god but not everything to be taken literally. So 75% of Americans that can read hold that the Bible should have an affect on our thinking which leads to the toxic mix.
The things that you read in the Bible are apt to not agree with Science. If the Bible toting and quoting people would have their way in government, then Science would lose.
Let us take a look at what your future would be without Science.
You would not be riding around in a hybrid type automobile. You would not have indoor flush toilets, or hot showers.
You would not have doctors to keep you in good health, or clean water to drink.
Most of all your life would be so boring without Netflix, iPads, and video games that you would want to run away from home.
I grew up in a world without television, cell phones, dish washers,computers, and high tech medical care. My family had people die because there were no advances in health care for cancer and leukemia.
I was not bored with only having a small radio and a library full of books, but I did want to run away from home.
So I hope that you grow up to be a smart man and love Science, because you are going to need it to save the world.
