The Rise of Unthinking False Dogma in American Science

I have submitted the following comment to the American Thinker site, in response to an article about the degeneration of Scientific American magazine into a kind of "church organ" of materialistic science and, now, the Insane Left brought to political correctness by Barack Obama. I am of course most mindful of the sorry state of science today, not the political dissolution:

First there was Charles Darwin, who doubted his God and concocted a bootstrap physical world, suspended by its own magical "evolution" apart from any meaning to it all. Then there was Secular Humanism, an overextension of the Enlightenment that made Man -- and his unplumbed origin and plethora of mental eccentricities -- the measure of all.

For a long time, the AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science) was the standard-bearer for the denial of design in the world and what it implies -- scientifically, but they can't stand that, and so redefine science to keep it out -- about a higher reality than the merely physical. For a long time, it has been an increasingly unbending promulgation of undirected evolution, that has been for several generations now only empty dogma/propaganda.

When Scientific American caught the disease, and began to morph into a full-on organ of the Church of Evolution and the Scientific Consensus, also known as the "The Science Is Settled" cult sect, it quickly lost all credibility with real scientists, who do not worship any theory (like Evolution), but only seek the light of the truth, however hard and long is the road to it.

See for example:

Once and Future Paradigm is back


Design vs. Contrivance

A new world order, a new scientific and religious paradigm, is here. And the current consensus knows nothing of it, and won't stoop to look at it.
