By faith or their political bent bound,
those who dissent from science for belief
show depth of ignorance truly profound.
Their idiocy only leads to grief.

The damage that they do has a wide range
to schools, our public policy and law.
Denying evolution, climate change
and such stalls progress, blocked by men of straw.

Their petty gripes endanger us, we must
join science to shatter their clay pigeons.
We can’t respect their stupidity just
for fear we might threaten their religions.

You’d think we would have come a longer way
since Socrates’ or Galileo’s day.

The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
