I think we've had this argument before, but in the form of "why should people need to understand evolution"?

It's not meaningless to their lives in a democracy where peoples' votes affect public policy. The sun is the source of most heat energy in the atmosphere, and changing the amount of the heat that is retained by changing atmospheric composition by pollution is what's causing anthropogenic global warming. The moon doesn't contribute directly to the heat budget of the earth.
Factoids are used to support existing political feelings, not drive them. Guarantee lbgtq stuff trumps gar gar their admittedly sad grasp of astronomy.

Warren, why is it that you think that lack of STEM knowledge should be met with physical suffering? Did a business major touch you in a bad place? Or did the cuter female business majors refuse to touch you in a naughty place?

The suffering is an unintended consequence of being unemployed. That these people have jobs means they have income. And that means they can exert market forces. It's like providing firearms to cats. They are too fucking stupid to be making purchasing decisions and it's hurting all of mankind.

Can't. The very first word in your proposed discussion is RACIST! And that's the end of the discussion.
