Isaac Asimov's article placed part of the blame for lack of science aptitude on the teachings of the bible.
I blame capitalism and greed for the lack of interest in these fields. I read a article and it stated that many
of the most brilliant math students were being sucked up by wall street. This alone would go a long way
in describing the problem. All the power is now controlled by the banks and corporations which have sold
out america and it's people. The banks and corporations don't care who has the technology as long as they
control it. While capitalism is necessary to promote growth it has ran amuck in the US and abroad. Every
thing that made america great has been flushed down the drain and it's people have been enslaved. Look
at the cost of college these days, their interest is focused on the $$$ and learning has taken a back seat.
I keep waiting on some forgein investment group to buy up american national parks and turn them into a
money makers. I think they are all scum sucking bottom feeding maggots and need to be done away with.
A revolution every now and then is a good thing.
