Closure a step backward

To abandon any science is to reject the world for the sake of making the present livable, writes Stan St. Lois

Re: Feds cut astronomy outreach (News, June 26)

To abandon science is to abandon society. Does anyone look at the past to see what has happened to a society that abandons science and research?

Medicine and the welfare of our society has only come about because of research and science. The whole of humanity is 2,000 years behind, because the elite in charge have no vision past the pocketbook.

To abandon any science is to reject the world for the sake of making the present livable. This is insane. The elites with no vision are taking us to the abyss to farther retard us another 1,000 years.

What is wrong?
