Do you want to see a perfect example of how common sense sometimes disappears with education? Yes, I’ve said it many times- just because someone has an education that doesn’t mean they have any common sense. Now, I’m no scientist, but it doesn’t take a genius to see the idiocy in this story.
The headline reads- Scientists Find “Liberal Gene”.
And the story goes on to try to explain the unexplainable. First, they try to link it with how many friends you had in high school. What, are we supposed to believe that having a lot of friends in high school makes us Liberal? Yes, according to these brainiacs. That, and the Liberal gene. You still have to have the liberal gene too. I’m not making this up.
In one sentence they say environmental conditioning is a factor. Then in the very next sentence, they say that political affiliation is not based on the kind of social environment people experience.
They also said their findings held true no matter what the ethnicity, culture, sex or age of the subjects were.
Give me a break.
It had me wondering, do they really think we are this stupid? But then I realized it was they who actually believe this crap. Don’t take my word for it. Read the story at the NBC San Diego website.
And keep in mind, not only do the “scientists” believe it, but the reporter had to believe it too, as well as the editor, and the webmaster.
