How did it happen that the Republican Party embraces superstition over science? If the evidence is there to support the scientific findings, then we should embrace them, not deny them. I am so enthralled by everything we have learned and by everything to be learned. Let us return to those heady days of the sixties when we truly believed that nothing was impossible and our mission was to "boldly go where no man has gone before". Somewhere along the way we took a wrong turn and we need to get back on track.
