Sarah Palin - scientist!!

She says it herself! Bill Nye, with his piddly degree in mechanical engineering, is no more a scientist than Sarah, who flunked out of 5 different universities before finally limping out with a BS in "communications" with an emphasis on "journalism". Odd that, since she writes at just less than an eighth grade level.

Well that's and long winded way of calling somebody an idiot.

Except that she's right, he's not a scientist, and neither is she. Both are idiots in their own right.

We get it, you don't like anything that anyone you don't like says, so even if you have to mangle their clear intent you're happy to do so.

FFS!

Who does science doesn't matter

but it helps if they comprehend how it works. Somehow, I put more credence in a guy with a degree in ME, who has been a practising scientist, than a politician.

isn't Palin a creationist, anyhow? I've met ducks with more smarts than her

Well I don't consider either Palin or Nye as experts on climate change science. Both have rather pointed political agendas.

RE: creationism? Remember that Sir Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla, Blaise Pascal, Louis Pasteur, Von Braun, and Max Planck were all creationists and it didn't seem to interfere with their grasp of the scientific method or scientific reasoning. Probably not a great litmus test to determine ones aptitude in science.

You typed quite a few words. Some of them are even related.

Bill Nye is an entertainer with an engineering degree. I wonder how long it's been since he worked in the field of his degree?

Some politicians have advanced degrees. Some can even reasonably be called scientists. Palin isn't one of them of course.

One can be a creationist and not discount science, they are not inherently incompatible.

She's hyperbolic and prone to metaphor, but she's not stupid. She is woefully uneducated in a few arenas.

You can be advanced in something but still be dumb as rocks, e.g. thinking that the pyramids were built to store grains

It's especially interesting when you consider Pasteur's work

I'm not sure that's in question here? (Nor is it a given based on your information, but I know what you're saying.)

Ive had people try and argue that because he's not a "real scientist" and that he's been an entertainer for however many years that he's actually an idiot and is wrong about climate change and whatever

I thought you were using a similar argument to say he's stupid

There's a paleontology joke in here somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find it.
