Study: Trust in science among educated conservatives plunges

The quote:

The growing distrust of science is entirely focused in two groups — conservatives and people who frequently attend church," says the study's author, University of North Carolina postdoctoral fellow Gordon Gauchat.

My thoughts:

There it is: The culture war laid bare.  The fault line that splits our nation.

Liberals and the less religious, vs conservatives and the more religious.

Science vs Faith.

Rational thinking vs "magic thinking".

Facts vs make-believe.

Frankly, this country could use a lot more science and a lot fewer "conservatives and people who frequently attend church"...
