Re: [humanism-174] Anti-science in American politics

 The bottom line is we do not promote our secular and scientific cause as well as the rich and religious promote their anti-science, pro-religion cause. I think the candidates know who dominates the numbers so they cater to them. We have to start making ground in the culture war or it will never change.
