|It seems to me that if science were strong enough and popular enough, religious zealots wouldn't be much of a problem. I think that pushy religious zealots should be fought in court or in the media or politics, in the most effective way possible, but I also think that science should and could do a lot more to make itself trustworthy, accessible, interesting, understandable, honest, and popular.|
What a delusion that is! Just like some (perhaps all) of religion itself is a delusion! Delusions by definition cannot be overcome by facts alone, but only by a transformation of a human mind.
Science does well enough as it is. Concern trolls like Kris are liars, period.
If science is doing so well, in the context of what I said, why is this site here, and why do you (and others) put so much effort into bitching about religion? And, if science is doing so well, why do way more people believe religious myths than science?
"Delusions by definition cannot be overcome by facts alone, but only by a transformation of a human mind."
I see that it hasn't occurred to you that facts, if presented effectively, could cause or at least encourage the transformation of a human mind. Of course in your case, it's a lost cause.
You're dumber than a dog turd. And speaking of delusional....
