It doesn’t happen often, but it happened earlier this week. Sen. Claire Celsi (D-West Des Moines) put out a tweet that The Iowa Standard agrees with.

“…Confirmation bias and why so many people reject science to meet their own belief systems.”

No, we didn’t actually click on the article or read it to see whether or not we agreed with Celsi. We simply agree that too many people reject science to meet their own belief system.

Too many people reject the science behind life at conception, which is science. From the moment of conception, life exists. Science textbooks throughout the years have all agreed with that.

Too many people reject the basic notion that there are two genders — male or female.

I mean, look, even when you’re ordering a transgender pride shirt, it only gives two choices for the gender:

No hint of any of the other 76 genders, or however many genders some people believe there are in order to meet their own political belief system.

And, it is also sad to see many people reject the science of basic biology when it comes to the family unit — the idea that it takes one man and one woman to make a baby. And that children do best when they are in a home with their mom and their dad.

Instead, in order to meet their own belief system, they think anyone should be able to marry anything, as long as it makes them happy.

Heck, some people even want to see mom and dad replaced on birth certificates with Parent 1 and Parent 2.

There are definitely folks out there who reject science to meet their own belief systems, but we’re not sure it’s the same group people that Celsi thinks it is.
