Cornelia Dean's Brave New Rules For Science
Based on her past articles and this current article, one can reasonably infer the following rules from Cornelia Dean:
1. Any scientific evidence or theory from which one can infer support for theism or a theistic worldview is not science, may not be presented to public school students and should not be discussed in the New York Times.
2. Any scientific evidence or theory from which one can debunk theism or a theistic worldview is good science, should be presented to public school students and should be discussed in the New York Times.
Please obey the rules.
As one person put it:
And I find it hard to suppress a chuckle at the sheer brass of books like Richard Dawkins's recent The God Delusion (Houghton Mifflin, 2006), which seem untroubled by traditional boundaries between religion and science as long as the intrusion is going their way.
Here is a link to a post about another "stunning hypocrisy" and double standard.
