This may read as somewhat nasty—it is not meant that way. It is meant as a combination of facing certain social and economic—and therefore, political—realities. It is about giving people who have an understanding of their “rights” that differs from my understanding of those rights as they apply to under-age voters in these here United States. It is also intended to have an obviously ironic tone with a dash of implied sarcasm . . .
FRANKLY, I think that those Americans that I will identify simply as being “anti-science” should have the right and our support to homeschool their kids as they see fit.
THEN they should be able to send those kids to their own anti-science grade schools and high schools where creationism is taught instead of science and biology. (Of course, they would have to build and maintain their own schools.)
THEN those kids can go to their own anti-science colleges where creationism is taught instead of science and biology. Degrees in all fields compatible with creationism would be offered and honored in all fifty states.
THEN the best and the brightest of these anti-science kids can go to their own anti-science medical schools where creationism is taught instead of science and biology. Degrees in all fields compatible with creationism would be offered and honored in all fifty states.
THEN when the parents of these anti-science kids need surgery, will they want go to an anti-science doctor that has been taught creationism?
OR will they want go to a doctor that has been taught science and biology in public schools where creationism is something that a handful of students do during their after-school hours?
This is the second version of this piece that I wrote. It was adapted from the first version, which I will post right after this as “one version of a libertarianesque utopia (first version).”
