    Right wingers insist that it's not possible that only 6% of scientists are "Republican".

    The reasons:

    1. It can't be.

    2. It's not possible.

    3. Science has become too liberal.

    4. Republican scientists are afraid to be "outed".

    5. Republican scientists only work in "industry".

    6. Republican scientists aren't "political".

    When I point out that 97% of scientists believe in the Theory of Evolution, then that means only 3% of Republican scientists believe in "mystical creation".

    With numbers this dismal, do Republicans think they can take a leadership position in education or science?

    Which is why this is in the "humor" section. Because it's a "joke" to think there are more than 6%.

    anyone who denies sceince would not likely seek it as a field.

    The right has pushed themselves out of the scientific fields with their failed ideas.

    Which is why it, pardon the word, "mystifies" me. What right winger would want to become a scientist and become ostracized by the right wing community?

    The only way to have pure science is to keep out religions and politics.

    Which is hilarious:

    40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal

    "Conservatives" Are Single-Largest Ideological Group

    Over at least the past decade, the federal S&E workforce has become more diverse, with increasing numbers and percentages of women and minorities. Women's share of the federal S&E workforce rose from 21% in 2000 to 27% in 2009. The share of minorities (Asians, blacks, Hispanics, and American Indians)rose from 18% in 2000 to 22% in 2009, with Asians at 9%; blacks, 8%; Hispanics, 4%; and American Indians, 1%

    Laboratory Equipment - S&E Workplace Becoming Increasingly Diverse

    Looks like blacks and hispanics are more than double the number you pulled out your butt.

    Actually, it's possible they are "double" the mere 6% of Republicans. Maybe that's why they have black and Hispanic and gay and women organizations of "science", but none I could find of Republicans. Maybe there aren't enough Republican scientists to start one? Oops!

    Black people 'less intelligent' scientist claims:

    One of the world’s most respected scientists is embroiled in an extraordinary row after claiming that black people are less intelligent than white people.

    James Watson, a Nobel Prize winner for his part in discovering the structure of DNA, has provoked outrage with his comments, made ahead of his arrival in Britain today.

    Which is odd since black people are the FIRST people.

    Tools may offer clues to earlier migration from Africa
