Catallaxy Files post : Haters going to hate (H/T Sinc).
“Bob [Carter] was an awful academic who did immeasurable damage to Australia’s reputation as a research centre, scientific nation and global citizen. The greatest shame of his death is that he did not live long enough to experience the impacts of his lies and obfuscation”
The problem with the religious is that they destroy everything that contradicts their authority, what ever that it is. From Muslims destroying graven images (to them) to Christians dunking witches or scientists adjusting the data, religious minds are always characterised by an inability to change, especially their minds. Unable and unwilling to do so, they then try to remove or destroy the sources of their fear. Or they conspicuously ignore it, hoping it will go away.
(Bob Carter passed away peacefully after heart failure earlier this week).
