Hoo boy! If you haven’t watched this week’s Cosmos, you need to. If you have, you know that there was way too much “blasphemy” for KOKH-TV to edit out of the show this week.
We’ve noticed a lot of Tea Partiers and other fundamentalist, anti-science nutjobs railing against the new Cosmos. It must be irritating for them to have one of the foremost purveyors of right wing propaganda airing a show that spends all of its time spouting off THEORIES–not even proven fact (oh, come on–none of them know what a “theory” is) to brainwash our children into being anti-Jesus liberals who love abortion and hate God.
Since a show that unabashedly and unapologetically peddles scientific guesses over what fundamentalists know to be true–that the world is 6,000 years old and Jesus and Pals rode dinosaurs to church–is allowed to air, we need a version that “Teaches The Controversy™”
Thankfully, some kind soul has saved the anti-science crowd (lookin’ at you, KOKH-TV) the trouble of tossing awkwardly-placed commercial breaks into the show in an effort to eliminate all mention of EVILution by updating Family Guy’s “edited” Cosmos for the modern hater of education.
