Return to "Essay: PZ Myers finally admits: "...I was naive and stupid"" page.

From Myers essay, it says,

what happened is that the credibility of science was stolen to bolster rationalizing prior bigotries. People were drawn into the Church of the New Atheism by Islamophobia, but rather than being enlightened about the unity of humanity, they instead learned that bastardized evolutionary theories could be weaponized to justify all kinds of abuses

Perhaps something could be excised from this for the War on Science? RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 12:24, 28 January 2019 (EST)

Scientific fraud is so rampant that a doctor told me that he no longer trusts medical journals and prefers to see medical procedures prove their effectiveness over a number of years. And he is probably one of the best doctors in his field for the city in which he resides.Conservative (talk) 13:10, 28 January 2019 (EST)
Can you put together a few paragraphs? Say one, two, or three using PZ Myers's essay? RobSDeep Six the Deep State! 13:47, 28 January 2019 (EST)
Fore example, here he says "the intellectual foundation of atheism," which presumably is science, then he claims "science was stolen to bolster rationalizing prior bigotries." The rest of the article (when he's not quoting someone else, is a treasure trove of the main thesis of War on Science, "the Leftist expropriation of natural science to promote crackpot social science theories."
