The issue is not “science vs. religion” or “faith vs. reason” but intellectual imperialism. You would have to be extremely stupid and/or brainwashed to not realize that this is a huge problem with Big Science. It is an undesirable human trait, and few, if any, groups in human history have ever been able to transcend it. The problem can be seen in the hilariously knee-jerk dismissals of anything that is vaguely associated with “religion” by modern scientistic atheists. They’re as brainwashed as any fundamentalist Christian.

At any rate, isn’t it amazing that the mainstream debate here hasn’t produced one first rate intellect among any of the parties? It’s just the same canned, mass produced ideas repeated over and over again. Read a little Kant and Schopenhauer (or even a little Bennett) and you realize the insignificance of the debate.
