Why I don’t believe in science…and students shouldn’t either http://zite.to/17IHBdr
I accept science as a reasonable method of describing the universe but I also believe that science is not always entirely accurate in its conclusions. Scientists like Richard have a philosophical ax to grind which makes their conclusions suspect. Hatred of anything, even religion, is an emotion which serves to skew the results of the scientist. The Nazi’s in Germany used science to build significant technology and to murder millions of Jews. Their hatred caused them to use science to do evil. A scientist who spews hatred of people because of their religion is making his own scientific judgements less believable. Richard’s recent rant about the limited contributions of Muslims to science clearly shows his attitude. Why should I believe his scientific conclusions? It is not in the best interest of our society to grant authority to people that express hatred.
