It’s not science I don’t trust – it’s the scientists
« on: August 28, 2018, 09:40:33 AM »


It’s not science they distrust so much as scientists — especially ones in more nebulous, activism-driven fields like ecology or sociology. As Cofnas told Campus Reform, a site that exposes left-wing bias at universities: ‘Conservatives are right to be sceptical. Take any politicised issue that is connected to some disagreement about scientific fact. I do not believe there is a single case in the last couple of decades where a major scientific organisation took a position that went against the platform of the Democratic party.’ He added: ‘What an odd coincidence that “science” always, without exception, supports the liberal worldview.’

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

Very well stated. He's absolutely right, the left creates these so called Eco hazards", then fills the ranks of researchers with leftists.

When we hear, "settled science" it means the left is empty of further logic.

This reminds me of that other thread, about science become a religion for the left.

It's not the news I don't trust, it's the newscasters.

It's not the politics I don't trust, it's the politician.

It's not the education I don't trust, it's the educator.

It's not the forum I don't trust, it's the forum.
First Amendment isn't just Freedom Of Speech, it's Freedom Of Conscience.

Who made you the arbiter of morality? You are not Government but you sure are acting like one.
