From John Stossel at Townhall:
We’ve been told conservatives don’t believe in science and that there’s a “Republican war on science.”
But John Tierney, who’s written about science for The New York Times for 25 years and now writes for the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, told me in my latest online video, “The real war on science is the one from the left.”
Really? Conservatives are more likely to be creationists — denying evolution.
“Right,” says Tierney. “But creationism doesn’t affect the way science is done.” More.
If we are dealing in the present day (as opposed to a pretend past about how the human ability to raise the eyebrow leads to the human mind), creationism can indeed have no impact on science at all.
But then neither can the alternative.
Here’s the vid.
