    Right wing should be thrilled with higher education. They’re all led by elitist millionaires sitting on huge endowments. Those leaders insist on paying their employees (teachers, professors and graduate students) poverty wages or nothing at all. All the while begging other rich bastards for handouts in exchange for naming buildings after them. What’s not to love for a Republican?

    Just dabbling in general science might help.

    Look at that tree. Where does it come from? A bunch of random atoms somehow decided to make a tree. Out of what? If we burn a tree, all we get is a little ash. That ash is the only solid chemicals that the tree got from the ground. What was the rest made of? Where did it come from? Photosynthesis tells us that the rest of the tree came from the air. 90% of every tree is just conjured from air.

    We’re surrounded everywhere by giant air crystals.

    What makes atoms want to get together and form those?

    Tons of fascinating questions if you think about it.
