The Religion of "Science"

The study of religious or heroic legends and tales. One constant rule of mythology is that whatever happens amongst the gods or other mythical beings was in one sense or another a reflection of events on earth. Recorded myths and legends, perhaps preserved in literature or folklore, have an immediate interest to archaeology in trying to unravel the nature and meaning of ancient events and traditions.

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

Whenever someone is presenting information that's too unsettling to ignore, some True Believer starts a smear site like the one you referenced. In which thousands of pertinent facts are simply ignored and reviling insults serve as "rebuttals." Since these advance the cause of orthodox Groupthink, hundreds of other Goodthinking sites link to it, and there it is on top of the google rankings. Suggesting it's important. Or something.

If calumny and insult don't make it for you as overview summations of what someone is saying, you'd be well advised to simply read some of what he's written and judge for yourself. (I know -- pretty radical idea).

Here are three I found especially interesting (I don't have the chops in physics & calculus to follow his mathematical stuff). His cultural history is dead on.

So then. Having read enough of him to form an opinion, do you find the smear site summary of him you posted to have been called-for ?

And seeing as he footnotes things almost to a fault and clearly demonstrates top-shelf, academic, competent analysis, was your blowoff line warranted ?

Circ : Forget what "everybody says."

Read the articles. All the way through. Consider the evidence he provides and the connections he makes.

Then decide for yourself.
