"Scientists are witches!"


First they came for atheists, saying they were a religion. Then they came for "secular humanists," claiming they were a religion.

Now, they're coming for scientists...

From Bartholomew: the past four years religious conservatives across the USA have learnt a lot about how to present their case: methodological naturalism is just “bias”; this is a battle of democracy against “elitism”.

Let's give equal time then to psychics-on-psychic-hot-lines, snake-oil salesman, and creationists.

It turns out that this sickness seems to be spreading. Check out Macht's comments on this post on Evangelical Outpost. The willingness to deny that there exists a scientific method is extremely dangerous for Americans.
