A bit of a surprise to me. I would have expected them more to just cut off "science funding". That would be more straight forward than this. These people don't know science. They don't even like science.

How many times have I told you, we're heading back to the middle ages and the intellectually minded are unwilling to fight back. Those best able to put these fools in their place ether content themselves with making fun of creationists thinking this is just a fad or demand we just sit back and tolerate anti-intellectualism in the name of free speech. If people don't wise up, the education system will collapse, religion will rule and the economy will stagnate before people finally except the truth by which point it'll be too late and everyone with a brain will be in hiding or getting executed like the last time.

The most logical and likely path for those who see, and understand the powerful and ignorant...is to allow them to follow the course of demise they must. Then pick up the pieces placed into the matrix of stupidity..and use them as intended.
Patience is a wonderful tool.

They tried picking up the pieces last time, too. Except for Chalamain, who everyone saw as Western Emperor, they were all killed or forced to play at magic which did nothing to dispel superstition. 800 years of darkness and when the Christians finally got their act together, the Muslims fell. The Muslims never regained their former glory and now the West is going backwards. If we fall, there will be no light left in the world and we'll be stuck for a lot longer then 800 years.

I used to think I was being paranoid but the more time goes by, the more shit like this happens and the more openly it's presented. The darkness is winning this fight and those with the means are unwilling to take the gloves off and do anything more then make fun of the idiots.
