What scientists can’t tell us …

Larry Witham

Well, they would, but …

Once you’re thick in Science, you can question the paradigm. But if you want to get grants, if you want to be elected to high positions, if you want to get awards as a promoter of public education of Science, you can’t question the paradigm. ~  45.09

I interviewed dozens and dozens of scientists and, when they’re amongst each other or talking to a journalist who they trust, they’ll speak about ‘It’s incredibly complex’ or ‘Molecular Biology is in a crisis’, but, publicly, they can’t say that. ~  45.52

  1. I interviewed dozens and dozens of scientists and, when they’re amongst each other or talking to a journalist who [sic: whom] they trust, they’ll speak about ‘It’s incredibly complex’ or ‘Molecular Biology is in a crisis’, but, publicly, they can’t say that.

    This is just so obvious. Materialism and its spontaneous-generation-of-life-from-dirt-leading-to-a-bacterium-which-eventually-produced-Mozart-and-his-symhponies-as-a-result-of-random-errors-filtered-by-natural-selection fantasy is just so much transparent idiocy in light of modern scientific discovery. (Please forgive the extended hyphenated adjective.)

    It is for this reason, among many others, that I eventually concluded that I could no longer muster up enough blind faith to be a materialistic atheist.

    Apparently I am in the same league as Antony Flew, who came to the same conclusion shortly before his death.
