Big Science = Evil

Or something like that. In a radio spot on Sean Hannity's show (Thursday) promoting the anti-evolution movie Expelled, one line heard was this:
The movie Big Science doesn't want you to see.
So it not just those pesky paleontologists who assert hominids have been around for millions of years. It's a much more menacing Big Science that we all have to contend with.

To the barricades! Smash their test tubes and mass spectrometers! Rip up their lab coats! Erase those formula-laden blackboards! Etc.


Hannity knows his audience. These are people who hate scientists but find engineers rather useful.

Laurie Anderson would find this very funny.

I have this idea. If you chose to ignore the gains that the scientific method has brought, including the theory of evolution - then perhaps you shouldn't benefit from discoveries in medicine, technology, etc.

Out of my way! I'm a scientist!
