Science Literacy

It's no wonder that kids know the story of Noah and all those animals on an arc but they know very little about science.  They get dragged to Sunday School and undergo indoctrination. They have more opportunities to familiarize themselves with this nonsense.

Science literacy is more important to society than fables or comparative literature.  Understanding we can solve problems using the tools that are known will change what things are done.  Instead of praying for help, people can help themselves.

As we counter the religious influence in society, more must be made available - for free - to people so they understand more and are afraid less.
