The transformation of science from a method to a metaphysic? In a review of William Deresiewicz’s Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life, historian Jackson Lears writes (Commonweal): It is a platitude that we cannot defend the humanities without slipping into platitudes.

Yes, because the mood is seeping into the sciences. A full professor now claims not to know what evidence is.

Shoot. At one time, the Haeckel fakes were just another Darwin sneery (= Sure, he lied, but so what? You people need to be lied to!)

Students who ask science professors certain questions will be the ones who’ll appreciate the weaknesses in various anti-ID or anti-creation theories. Preferably they’ll ask after they’ve gotten an “A” in the class, maybe even after they’ve gotten their diploma.
