Awww…According to our Attorney General, Eric Holder, the one thing that keeps him awake at night is the alarming rise in the number of Americans who are more than willing to attack, kill and otherwise do malicious damage to their fellow citizens. Sadly, our esteemed Attorney General is more likely to be spending his restless nights worrying over conservative Christian Tea Party grandmothers rather than those people with a proven record of treacherous and damnable behavior. Take, for instance, modern America’s current socially privileged group: homosexuals. Democrats with the cooperation of a few spineless Republicans, have decided to invite this minority out in the open to celebrate, as acceptable and normal, a lifestyle that is anything but normal. By repealing the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT) policy they have taken the first, dangerous step in unleashing this “lifestyle” upon us. Unfortunately, a quick look into homosexuality’s history reveals homosexuals to be exactly the sort of people willing to attack, kill and otherwise do malicious damage to their fellow citizens.
Scientists, not unlike journalists, are arrogant people. No, its not because they are, as some would have you believe, smarter than the rest of us. It really has more to do with their perceptions of their reputations. Science, we are repeatedly told, is concerned with facts and data and therefore it is supposedly immune to the sort of criticism leveled at the likes of politicians and clergymen. Unfortunately, scientists are, in fact, human and therefore susceptible to the same biases and temptations that befall the rest of us. Is it then shocking to find out that scientists would cast their “precious” reputations before swine and bias their research in favor of a particularly desired outcome, especially if by doing so they would gain both fame and the financing needed to continue their pursuits? Of course not.
