Here’s past awards to compare with. Everything this administration does has my skepticism as, so far, almost every action turns to personal profit. Rick Perry, as the least qualified person imaginable, is hopefully a true figurehead. If so, then perhaps this arm is functioning still. Hopefully.

Look for loaded phrases.

“new understandings of spacetime and the emergence of the universe” is most likely: “How can we use this technology as a proof of God?”

Think about it: What “new understanding” do we need?
What we have now is amazing.
“Further understanding” is what it normally would be.

But “new understanding”? You gotta watch these guys with the clever phrases that look ALMOST normal.

Ok. I think I got it:
a) Rick Perry wants to prove Intelligent Design (“new understanding”)
b) Rick Perry wants to break into Bitcoin to steal.
 
There. Now, just watch what happens.

You’re thinking like a science geekI wish I could here.

But when a strong proponent of Intelligent Design talks about “new understandings of the origins of the Universe”, he’s not thinking about 2d superfluids.

  Imagine this 2019 Headline:
“US Govt builds 7 Quantum Supercomputers to prove the existence of God”.
Bad science is my concern. Is it all THAT awful? Not really. Mostly embarrassing. But then again, string theory was mostly a waste of $$ and embarrassing too, so why not talk about God and Jesus on the Science channel?Might get a few more souls in. Meh, whatever.

=====
Rick Perry has been especially embarrassing through the years as he GENUINELY believes in a lot of alternative God-based ideas and wants to change how science is understood.
 
So, he’s a little more than a run-of-the-mill fundy.

Yup. and I hate that I sound nutty talking about this. I don’t care if somebody has their own religious thing going on. But when they use their political powers to try to upend science, I’m going to ring the warning bell.
