Why replace high school calc with stats? Why not do both? Two different kinds of reasoning, and one can feed the other. Both are needed.
I am a citizen of the country that scuttled the SSC, considers me to be an economic parasite, and doesn’t care if I live or die.
I am a physicist, with a near perfect attendance record for 60 years in the classroom, and soon may face the reality of once again not having access to health care.
In an otherwise sane society I would be one of many active participants in solving our social ills. In the “reality” of this society I am considered irrelevant at best and down-right anti- on the worst of days.
This is not about me … This missive is about the collapse of sanity in this country …
The estimate is that 96% of members of the National Academy of Sciences are atheists. In the U.S. an atheist has a smaller chance of electoral success than a Communist. For scientists to become legislators the idiot voting public would have to change, or the scientists would have to lie and become “men of faith”. They would then be in good company in Congress where most members are liars.
