Resistance to Science? Faith In Philosophical Materialism?

A recent article entitled "Why Do Some People Resist Science?" got a lot of comment in the blogosphere recently.

This post about it and many of the comments are worth a read.

I note one comment in particular:
They are playing with a very sharp sword that cuts both ways.

Using the other side of that sword, I have commented previously about possible reasons why people put so much faith in philosophical materialism that they refuse to follow the scientific evidence wherever it leads: here and here and here, and with an overview on worldviews here.

Very interesting article. C.S. Lewis's Abolition of Man came to mind when I read that. They want to re-engineer the natural thinking processes of children (and possibly adults) to accept materialistic ideologies unquestioningly.

We should just accept scientists as trustworthy just because they say so. Incredible.
