The irony is that conservatives, who tend to be cautious toward change, are critical of the scientific community because it's cautious toward change.
Warrsaw, I think we understand each other and are close to agreement, even though I disagree that politics pervades science at every level. I hope that a disdain for scientists and science won't become a common conservative attitude. Science is largely responsible for why the quality of our lives today is far better than it's ever been in history. But our quality of life can still be improved, and science is still our best bet for eliminating disease and making everyone rich.
