silly season

Dr Alan Leshner, BC, resolves the compatibility issue once and for all

The fact that so many are weighing in on the science-religion compatibility issue is an important sign. There's a lot of discomfort about. As Ophelia Benson reports, the head of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, obviously a Big Cheese, has come out with the same line as that country's NCSE. Some 50% of US scientists are religious, therefore science and religion are compatible, end of story, and he hopes that will bring an end to the debate!!??#&! No mention of epistemology, which is what this is all about. The utter inanity of these remarks, from such a Big Cheese, is sure to fire up the issue all the more. What fun!
