Heartland and Discovery Institutes - Not So Strange Bedfellows

Panda's Thumb - Sat, 2014-07-12 11:47
Because of the cognitive dissonance required to buy into pseudoscientific beliefs, it’s not surprising when an adherent of one pseudoscience is sucked into believing another one. For example, there is considerable overlap between advocates of 9/11 Truth beliefs and advocates of anti-Semitic causes, or between young-earth creationists and climate change deniers. The Discovery Institute has been engaging in climate-change denial for some time (see here and here, for example), so it’s really not surprising... Dave Thomas http://www.nmsr.org

Understanding creationism, VII: An insider's guide by a former young-Earth creationist

Panda's Thumb - Thu, 2014-07-10 21:10
By David MacMillan. 7. The religion of evolution. The final set of creationist misconceptions about evolution surrounds its supposed religious, moral, and ethical implications. These objections prove difficult to address, simply because they have little or no objective basis and are almost purely philosophical or religious.
