That would make life so much more fulfilling. But the fundies would claim we're trying to dominate our culture with our facts and statistics and evidence and stuff. You know, only the shit that brought us all the modern conveniences of life. So yeah I'm all for it.

In a word or two: qualified teachers. As part of the Cuyahoga
Astronomical Association, we do outreach to the community at large. We do public
star parties and give talks and do programs at local libraries. The
enthusiasm is out there, and the teachers are enthused to have us do what we do,
but often their knowledge base is either low or often out of date. But the
article is correct in that modern astronomy is the field that tells us where and
what we are and how we really relate to the rest of the universe!

crazy! I thought this article was great:
I think this article sums it up.
Children do not learn (unless their parents are into it) about space and
the universe. I honestly did not get into it until about 10 years ago.
I can read about the universe all day and night on the internet. I
don't know too many children that are exposed to it and I think if they were,
they would love it too.
I went off the subject a bit, but
still - look how fascinating it is to us when we learn something new?
With the technology today, it seems that every day we are learning
something new they found in our universe. Children today would benefit
so much from it. Just as the article reads in one
