    What happened to logic in America?

    How does someone with no scientific training look at proven scientific facts and say, that's wrong based on the irrefutable fact that I choose to believe it's wrong?

    Sometimes sentiments rather than fact dictates the inclination of humans.You don't expect a man who depends solely on exploration of coal for his livelyhood to support a ban on coal exploration activity simply because they say it polutes the environment. No matter how true the facts are, people will be more interested in protecting thier primary comfort than accepting a fact that may threaten it.

    US society promotes ignorance .. and the lack of education is NOT accidental. "Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern, but impossible to enslave."

    Well, logic died and was reborn as being illogical.

    Excellent question.  Unfortunately, we see this in other areas as well.  People react emotionally, rather than logically because emotion outweighs logic.  Logic appears to be dissipating slowly, and uncomfortably I might add.   In relationship to science, we see knee-jerk reactions to science because people simply don’t trust it, or it presents a condition or event that is either uncomfortable or negates a belief.

    One person's logic is another person's bible quote.
