Blind Faith

The current news about the Hubble Space Telescope is an apt metaphor for the Bush administration. A couple weeks ago, Hubble took on of the first actual pictures of an extrasolar planet. A week later, we hear the big news that funding for Hubble repair missions is being dramatically cut by the White House for 2006.

Since the President believes the world really was created in 7 days by the all mighty, I guess there's no reason for us to explore the universe any farther.

He also believes there's no reason to continue the silly study of stem cells. Even though the US main line of stem cells is contaminated. I guess his philosophy is that if you get enough sleep or enough vacation time, you won't get sick.
