Well, there's 1,000 members there. I wouldn't call 1,000 of anything a lot in a country of over 300,000,000. And that's even assuming all 1,000 of them are from the US, an assumption I think is highly questionable.
If you wanted to revise your statement to some conservatives support science, I'd agree. You need a hell of a lot more than you've shown so far to be able to claim that a lot do.
Moreover, it's rather disappointing for you to claim that you couldn't care less about the rest. I'm an old school Goldwater Republican, what today's conservatives call RINO, or in some cases socialist, and I'm embarrassed by what modern conservatism has become. If I still called myself conservative, I'd be positively mortified by the state of the party. It's people who continue to follow along with neocons and who don't care about what they've done to the party that have all but destroyed it. If intelligent conservatives stood up to the godstapo instead of letting them control the direction of the party, they never would have allowed Sara Palin or Paul Ryan anywhere near the ticket and we might not have had 8 years of Obama.
If you are in fact correct that a lot of conservatives support science, you, my friend, and people like you, are what is wrong with conservatism.

Organic life is nothing but a genetic mutation, an accident. Your lives are measured in years and decades. You wither and die. We are eternal, the pinnacle of evolution and existence. Before us, you are nothing. Your extinction is inevitable. We are the end of everything.
