The irony here is a bit much. Science is a method. It is not a priesthood of infallible experts whose edicts must be obeyed. And when you say 'science denier' it sounds a lot like 'heretic' or 'blasphemer'.

The Royal Society, the first scientific organization formed in 17th century London, ad as their motto: Nullius In Verbim. Take nobody's word for it. That is because they knew very well what could happen when councils of experts became ultimate ideological arbiters, from having lived with the scourge of state religion.

Today pop scientism fanatics seem to want to do the same thing with science. Not only does that carry the same potential for abuse of authority, it defies the very spirit of the scientific method.

I call malarkey on you, sir. Your desire to be identified with the normative trappings of modernism makes you more guilty of your accusation than your targets.

“I agree that nonsense makes perfect sense and that I am the Dungherder. I can put my foot right in the pile and get my slice-o-the pie.”
