Been following Michael Spector, author of Denialism ..how irrational thinking... When did it become part of political ideology to be anti science? We have the progressives spouting nonsense about big pharma and corporate farms and scientifically modified food...and we have right wing conservatives denying climate change (diff than global warming) and trying to stop stem cell research and believing some of the nonsense progressives spout. We have the crazies shouting about vaccines and chiildhood diagnosis of a variety of syndromes including autism...scares about floride in water supplies...irrational H1N1 vaccine fears. how many here are deniers of science, and WTF happened to critical and rational thinking in American politics?
