    The professor was a man of science. Therefore by definition he couldn't be a Conservative. Reminds me of the joke: "How do you hide money where a Republican will never find it?" "Put it inside a science book."

    The Republican Party Isn't Really the Anti-Science Party

    Conservative conflict with science on evolution and global warming has been exaggerated—while liberals get a free pass for their own failings.

    Yes, an embarrassing half of Republicans believe the earth is only 10,000 years old—but so do more than a third of Democrats. And a slightly higher percentage of Democrats believe God was the guiding factor in evolution than Republicans.

    It is on the subject of climate change that many on the political left deeply hold some serious anti-scientific beliefs. Set aside the fact that twice as many Democrats as Republicans believe in astrology, a pseudoscientific medieval farce. Left-wing ideologues also frequently espouse an irrational fear of nuclear power, genetic modification, and industrial and agricultural chemistry—even though all of these scientific breakthroughs have enriched lives, lengthened lifespans, and produced substantial economic growth over the last century.

    Oddly, in my career as a scientist I've worked with far more conservatives than liberals.

    I worked in the oil, computer, and aerospace industries. You might argue that two out of three of those are naturally politically biased... but they're also the industries that employ the largest number of scientists. And trust me, there's far more scientific integrity in commercial industry than in academics, where researchers are fighting tooth and nail for government funding and tenure. Nobody ever told me what the conclusions of my research were supposed to be... and if I'd been any less than completely objective, I'd have been roasted alive by my co-workers.

    I always find it amusing when people who can't science their way out of a paper sack act all superior about their scientific enlightenment, based on something they read in a political cartoon.

    Oh, but this topic is about the Professor, right? As a friend used to say, "He can make a radio out of a coconut but he can't fix a hole in a boat." Hmmm... sounds like a lot of people I've worked with.

    The professor told Mr. Howell to stop paying attention to his fortunes! Why? Because in the end, he would be worth much, much more. Long term investing PAYS!!! HOLD ON TIGHT!

    ^THIS

    Being in science myself, I still don't understand those devote 'christians' who work in science and engineering, why don't they pick a theology field and work that instead? Not sure how they reconcile the evolution crisis they must run into. I suppose its comparable to hypocrites of the right wing religious nut jobs who spew hatred toward the LGBTQ community on the outside but then get caught in same sex, sex scandals behind closed doors

    STEM is still too homophobic, unfortunately, especially around middle management. However Space X is 'pioneering' the next gen space travel, working there as I understand it, is compared to a 'meat grinder', the working hours are just insane and from what Ive seen and read already, the 'workforce' within the Elon Musk group are definitely DrumpfTard nerdy types (of the south bay).

    Space X only required 'diversity' because of CA strict equal employment opportunity, if I had to guess, Space X, located in the south, would be much different in terms of anti gay rhetoric and who they hire

    Certainly 'young', among the worker bees, but middle management are deplorable supporters, Ive avoided applying and working here, I am sure homophobia is rampant here as with Tesla already

    Not very 'diverse' at Space X at all, looks like a 25 year old, white only tRumpTard festival icon_confused.gif
    Shouldn't a business reflect its neighborhood (Hawthorne), these young white people are all obviously imports from Orange County icon_rolleyes.gif

    Operation Paper Clip brought Nazi scientists to USA, I have no doubt, there are still Nazi sympathizers in the science community, I could swear, I once worked with Nazi leader Richard Spencer when he was fresh out of college, didn't know 'who he was' at the time

    Yes I must agree on that.
