The lack of comments says a lot about the importance of education in this country. America will continue to decline as the emphasis on self-interest trumps common good.

"and some were lifted up unto pride and boastings because of their exceedingly great riches, yea, even unto great persecutions; for there were many merchants in the land, and also many lawyers, and many officers. And the people began to be distinguished by ranks, according to their riches and their chances for learning; yea, some were ignorant because of their poverty, and others did receive great learning because of their riches." (3 Nephi 6:10-12)

the lack of comments is not surprising given the complete refusal of people to accept the research that is being done if it in anyway challenges their beliefs about the world and the way they think it should be. Education and reason are viewed as the devils tool by to many Americans.
