 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.

It's too bad our understanding of Probability and Statistics is so divergent because we agree on a lot!

"While capitalism is necessary to promote growth it has ran amuck in the US and abroad."

I would modify this by replacing "necessary" with "able" and assert that this is probably our major problem because continuous growth on a finite planet is a recipe for disaster.  Since our finite resources are beginning to restrict this growth the processes of capitalism are now being focused on the task of concentrating ownership and/or control of these resources into fewer and fewer hands.  To the extent that there is resistance to this, there is a problem...

    There is no difference in our understanding of Probability and Statistics except when it concerns the lottery.

    The lottery is my escape from the ridgeness of reality and if I thought of the lottery in terms of the odds I would

    never play.   Some people go fishing, some go to bars and others may go to church.  There are many places we

    go to get away from it all and mine is the lottery.  My picks will always have as good a chance as any other ticket

    while at the same time it poses a challenge.  I don't even have to pruchase a ticket to test my theories about what

    will happen next.  I agree 100% with the stats but if I focus on them alone, I would need to find another hobby.

    I very often have to clear my mind of everything statistical before I can do anything with the lottery because the 

    stats all say one thing, "Don't Play."  The methods/systems I use have one thing that most others don't.   One win

    in 20 attemps will many times cover my play for a year.  Everything I do is just an alternative way of picking numbers

    that works for me.
