Fantastic Essay about Idiot America

jblaque has reposted fantastic 2005 essay by Charles P Pierce that was published in Esquire about science vs. religion, intellect vs. gut, enlightenment vs. deliberate ignorance, and the loss of the American Dream to Idiot America called Battle for the Planet of the Apes.

Fantastically long, but oh-so-worth-the-read, if only for the insightful punchline at the very end.

All I want to say is: "Yes. What he said."

We desperately need a return to sanity, not to mention a return to science and the enlightened, intellectual, humanistic principles that actually founded the U.S. so badly that hurts.
