Science is dying. Are we worried?

I concur wholeheartedly with the concept of the Darwinist Dilemma. How did the Academic and Scientific intelligentsia find itself in a position of absolute denial of the Intelligent Design Theories.  Excluding the conspirators who want to assassinate God and the group who suffer from delusions of grandeur, unbridled ego and arrogance, the scientific literati has lambasted Ben Steins movie, just as they do to anyone who proposes an alternate to atheism in the scientific arena. At least the blogs and article speak to the discrimination and blacklisting.

In the quest for intellect, scientific explanation and philosophical realism these egomaniacs become total Constructivists. Without even the slightest amount of wiggle room, they poo-poo it all.

Science is dying. Charlie Rose recently brought a group together in his science series: The Imperative of Science with Paul Nurse, President of Rockefeller University, Harold Varmus, president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Shirley Ann Jackson, President of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Bruce Alberts, Editor-In-Chief of Science and Lisa Randall of Harvard University.  It was enlightening yet very sad to look at the faces of these people and the fact that science was dying. Investment, education and real progress is way down. Money being the biggest cause.

What really appears to be the issues are that people have become sick, tired and disenfranchised from the secular left. George Bush is the poster child for Neo-Con right evangelical anti-science idiocy.  The funding for the sciences has suffered under Bush-Clinton-Bush. The reality is that the cost and benefits are debatable. 

The Oxfordians, Rhodesmen and Ivycrats just can’t get their minds out of metaphysical.  Not being able to prove natural selection creates the same dilemma for creationists. It’s just a matter of faith at this point. Richard Dawkins “The God Delusion” is a good example. I still can’t find his opinion on Bioethics. If I said he was just an atheist who tests on animals, I might be correct.

Science might have alienated many who have been left cold by it’s limited effect on spiritual enlightement and left many feeling the void of it’s grand conclusions.

John Locke said- Essay on Faith and Reason

“Faith, on the other side, is the assent to any proposition, not thus made out by the deductions of reason, but upon the credit of the proposer, as coming from God, in some extraordinary way of communication. This way of discovering truths to men, we call revelation.”
