Myer is an atheist. One of the more vocal ones about that belief. He
is a regular here and we get along fine most of the time. "Figures.
Christians have a growing reputation for their appreciation of
dishonesty." Is a stupid statement.
And a good example of the reason why many people consider him - and
Dawkins - to be little better than Stein and his buddies, opposite sides
the same coin.
Myers sees a concerted effort to destroy the intergrity of science
education in the Western world - especially the US -
I would say mainly the US, fundamentalist impact on this side of the
Atlantic is minimal.
lies repeated by folks making money off of those they lie to: their
Doctor Myers made a statement that can be seen as a generalization,
and perhaps it was,
Yes it was.

Which is no excuse for him lowering his standards to the level of the people
whose standards he despises.
apparently devastated). He has on other occasions clarified that he
only has it in for those who make a concerted and dishonest effort to
assault science, and insult the honor and competence of scientists.
Like Dawkins, he would pay little attention to these folks (who is
more boring than a born-again talking about it?) if they weren't
trying to tear down civilization. As you probably know, several of our
regulars are theists of various sorts, and they do have to put up with
some generalizations that insult them
Why should they simply have to put up with such insults? Why should we
lambast those Creationists who try to denigrate all scientists as charlatans
because of the actions of a minority (Piltdown Man etc) but ignore those who
try to denigrate all Christians because of the actions of a minority?

I too am firmly on the side of science, that's why I get annoyed with those
who abuse it to attack religion just as much as I get annoyed with those who
try to use religion to undermine it; both of them are enemies of science as
far as I'm concerned.
Stein is a liar, an intellectual coward, and a self-serving, small
minded book-burner. And as an actor, he's strictly a one-trick pony.
He is a fool, contemptuous of knowledge in general and of scholastic
I have no argument whatsoever with that which is the reason that I get so
annoyed with people like Myers and Dawkins who should know better but seem
unable to resist the temptation to lower themselves to Stein's standards.
