Skepticism is rampant on the right

    A number of recent polls indicate that alarmingly high numbers of Americans are addicted to fantasy.

    Climate change, or global warming, is a hoax.  The earth is 10,000 years old.  God created man just as he is.  Creationism should be taught alongside evolution in science classes…let the children decide. 

    If you just believe something hard enough, it will become true…and if you deny the truth often enough, it will cease to be true. 

    God help us.
