Because . . . scientists!

When the “Christian” Left goes along with the anti-human “climate change” Leftist political power grab and the anti-God / anti-science nonsense of Darwinian evolution, they typically point out how many scientists agree with them.  This deliberately ignores the financial and peer pressures that scientists have no immunity to.  History couldn’t be more clear: If you risk your career and reputation for opposing the party line, you are more likely to “believe” the mainstream view.

But it gets worse: The “Christian” Left ignores when scientists are in vast agreement on a host of other issues, including those that are far less controversial and unlikely to be influenced by politics.  Exhibit A: The “Christian” Left insists that Jesus supports killing unwanted children up to their first breath* even though mainstream embryology texts (and common sense) say that a new human being is created at fertilization.  I’m too pro-science to be pro-choice.

And here’s more via Two-Thirds of Scientists Support Building More Nuclear Power Plants.

Apparently 65% of the scientists surveyed think that building more nuclear power plants is a good idea.  That compared to only 45% of the non-scientist American public.

The reasons behind the scientific communities pro-nuclear power attitudes are not explained in the Pew study.  But, given the years that the environmental moment and the entertainment industry have spent attempting to convince the American public that nuclear power is a threat to humanity and not a positive way of improving Americas energy independence, it might give them pause to know that such a big majority of scientists seem to have no problem with expanding the sources of nuclear power in the United States.

Large majorities of the scientists surveyed also believed that it was safe to eat genetically modified foods (88%) and and favor the use of animals in research (89%), unlike the general public.

I’m sure the “pro-science” “Christian” Left will switch views to pro-nuclear, pro-genetically modified foods, etc. now.

  1. I think it’s really a throw-away argument; something they pull out of their backsides when they need a quick criticism of people of faith. It has no basis in fact, even when speaking about topics such as evolution or the age of earth.

    1. I’m sitting in an airport right now listening (against my will) to CNN go on and on about Whitney Houston’s (?) daughter, as if nothing else more newsworthy is happening in this world right now. I simply can’t take anything that is steeped in liberalism, like CNN, and climate science, or any of the rest of it seriously anymore. It actually surprises me when I meet someone who does.
