Exclusive: Far-Right Creationists Are Setting Trump’s Virus Response

“…evidence suggests that the administration’s [coronavirus] policies have also been inspired by people pushing the original “alternative fact,” the false belief that organic evolution is a myth.
[White House chief of staff] … Meadows has multiple direct links to far-right “creationist” activists who promote a belief that most of the Earth’s fossils were actually created during the flood story recounted in the Bible—and who want public policies to reflect that belief.
Vice President Mike Pence, chair of the White House coronavirus task force, has claimed on the floor of Congress that the fossil record does not prove evolution, that science is too changeable to be trusted, and that schools should also teach that humans were “created” by God in their current form.
Scott Atlas, the Stanford University radiologist and mask skeptic who has fast become Trump’s top coronavirus adviser, heartily endorsed the COVID-19 mitigation proposals of George Gilder, co-founder of the Discovery Institute, a Seattle-based think tank that specializes in promoting supply-side economics, climate science denial, and “intelligent design,” a spit-polished version of creationism which focuses more on attacking “Darwinism” than promoting biblical fundamentalism. According to Atlas, Gilder’s recommendation to “defer as much as possible to the principles of freedom” was “right on target.”
Discovery… recommend[ed] that Trump hire Atlas as part of a “red team” to “challenge lockdown-manic governors.”
“Creationists working with climate deniers to say that lockdowns are ineffective is a perfect example of what I call ‘crank magnetism,’” Glenn Branch, deputy director of the National Center for Science Education told me in an interview. “People who promote pseudo-science in one area are very likely to promote it in another.” [emphasis mine]

Crank magnetism, indeed. It wasn't a total surprise to me that anti-vaxxers and new age crystal enthusiasts are flocking to Q-Anon, the alt-right's new cocoon of madness. When multiple threats make life scary, anyone not grounded in science is an easy mark.

If Mike Pence thinks that science is too changeable to be trusted, he should put down his cell phone and park his car and quit wearing engineered blended fabrics and go back to riding a one-horse shay to work!  These assholes still can't be bothered to notice that it's the same science that gives them those conveniences that also confirms that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and evolution is a verifiable fact and theory.

Wasn't he the person who stood on the Senate floor and proved that climate change and global warming was bunkum by holding up a snowball? A truly stupid man, who Trump put in charge of the fight against the pandemic. If things don't go the way we hope in this election we are doomed.

That may have been one of Texas' reps ... Gohmert, I think.  Zero brains.
