“Americans consume 80% of the entire global supply of painkillers.” (Gerald Celente)
Psychiatrist Paul McHugh: “Curt Shilling is of course correct with the science in saying that claiming to be a woman when you have the chromosomal and anatomical structures of a man does not make you such. You’re still a man no matter what you think or how you dress.”
The defenders of “science” sometimes are more interested in defending their own non-scientific agendas (and squelching dissent in a most unscientific way, as suggested by William McGurn yesterday in the Wall St. Journal):
On the abortion issue, a “fetus” is not an “unborn person,” unless, of course, a couple is happy about a pregnancy.
On the general theory of evolution, facts are facts… unless they are assumptions about the interpretation of data.
On climate change, McGurn suggests that “green enthusiasms can be used to push through a progressive economic and regulatory agenda.”
That “a man is a man” is “supported by DNA and those pesky X and Y chromosomes” (McGurn).
And this gem from yachting tycoon Larry Ellison: “Death has never made any sense to me.” Ah, this is another area where “scientific observation” at the end of existence will validate our faith.
