Two Questions (maybe three)

Does the refusal to examine both sides of an issue equal ignorance? As long as you understand there is another side, does that mean you are enlightened, though biased? If I want to let Al Gore and Co. lead me by the nose ring through the global warming debate because I'm too lazy to peruse voluminous data, am I stupid, ignorant or bias? What if I let Falwell convince me that the "science" of creationism should be taught to my kids in school, though I'm aware of the existence of Darwinism but not interested in examining its merits, or whether creationism can even be classified as science?

Is the American public in general, as stupid as I suspect they are?

Please weigh in...I need to know what you think!
