You Can't Trust Science

(tip to southern builder)



One of the most annoying counter-arguments religious people (and more despicably, some "agnostics") have is that many of these scientists were religious, therefore religion wins. Somewhere in some forum I had someone telling me a list of catholic scientists as an argument that science owed a lot to catholicism. Maybe it did, by burning all the weaker scientists at the stake, so only the strong who could get away survived.

I wonder if any of these scientists were also pedophiles. Would this be a win for pedophilia I wonder?

In any event, I love Sam Harris' reponse to such an argument.
