    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

    ""When stupidity is considered patriotism, it is unsafe to be intelligent."



    - Isaac Asimov

    Beliefs are not based on thought processes. This makes it impossible to change a believer's mind with logic. Therefore, it is appropriate to answer a believer's statement with, "you're out of your f-ing mind."
