To a gentleman I know:

I'm not sure if this will reach its intended audience, but I think it is a message that deserves a little spotlight: There is a strong value in teaching science literacy and understanding, although you may currently feel that it does not. It is true that many people will value their beliefs over science, but you must never forget that people grow and mature -- beliefs can also change. It helps if there is a teacher present, and teaching can often be a very difficult job. Just remember that you cannot give up that light of truth, because the only way it really will go out is if you let it die.

A strong statement, worth more than the comment I deleted.

Candide, I hope you don't give up.
