We’re Blinding Them With Science

22 04 2017


The intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.

That’s how Oxford University defines “science” in terms of American English.

So, as I look at the P-D’s photo set for today’s “March for Science” downtown, why do I see:

* Equal rights
*  Planned Parenthood
*  Make It Legal (i.e. marijuana) (Ever read medical literature about marijuana?  It’s none too kind, and wouldn’t invoke the spirit of legalization. — Ed.)
*  Bill Nye 4 President
*  Trump is a Russian puppet (Unfortunately, recent events are popping that bubble — Ed.)

Methinks some people confound “politics” for “science.”

“Scientists”: Hands off our grants.
Intersectionalists: Your cause (whatever it is) is privileged unless it comes last.
