    Not sure where this goes, so I'll just put it here.

    I'm pretty scientifically minded, so I don't have a problem with the lexicon. But I can see how others would. I agree that there needs to be better education by the scientific community on things such as climate change etc. But it doesn't help with the dumbing down of America. That's the real problem, in my opinion.

    Keep the words, educate the people the problem if you than change the words again, it might stir more confusion with the disjointed old words which its based on.

    We need much higher educational standards, but are not willing to spend any money on improving the systems. Hmm. "Garbage in, garbage out" seems to apply here.

    Whenever we have the munchkins (once a month) I make sure to have a teachable moment with them. Once while driving down the road behind a manure spreader (!) I taught the kids about the food cycle.

    Fertilizer> spread on fields> nitrogen from manure feeds the corn> corn feeds the cows> cows produce milk and meat> cows ****> farmer spreads manure to fertilize the fields to grow the corn.

    There's always some real world knowledge to pass on to the kids. We've done the water cycle etc. It's fun, I love it and so do they. I will not have dumb children in this family, lol.
