I would leave this comment directly on the site but I'm not going to sign up just to post one comment, especially not when the very first thing that happened when I went there was an attempted click-jacking. Assholes. However, I must get this off my chest before I explode with seething, pyro-kinetic fury.
I love it when people use the internet from a computer in the comfort of their air conditioned homes powered by electricity to complain about the "evils of science." It shows how hypocritical and ignorant they are. Hey, here's an idea- if you hate science so much, go live in a cave where the evil scary science can't get you. Or better yet, instead of blaming science for socioeconomic disparity, why not instead make efforts to ensure that everyone can share equally in its fruits? That is not at all impossible. Maybe if we spent less money CAUSING a lot of that disparity by blowing people up left and right, we'd have enough money to share the wealth and by extension, the science.
If anyone wants to be a cave-dwelling, anti-science luddite, by all means, have fun in your new bat-poop and fungi infested shit-hole. I'll be busy enjoying all that science has to offer, including the company of my mother who wouldn't be here today if it weren't for the lifesaving medical procedure of organ transplanting. Incidentally, a process she undergoes every few months that checks for organ rejection and cancer was derived directly from that Human Genome Project this Michael Thomsen clown so foolishly poo-poos because he, in his almighty wisdom, can't see the benefits. Very little to show? I can't speak for anyone else but I'm reasonably sure those with loved ones still living because of an organ transplant and HGP-based cancer-screening would beg to vehemently fucking differ.
Edit: And for the record, I'm not saying we should never criticize science. I am saying that you shouldn't be a !@#$%^&ING HYPOCRITE about it. If you're going to complain about how evil science is, then stop using science! And we shouldn't blame science for the faults and shortcomings of humankind. Science is a concept, a method, a way of understanding the universe. You can't blame that for atomic bombs, eugenics, or the shit Monsanto does. We have human greed, ignorance, fear, stupidity, corruption, malice, and shortsightedness (among other things) to blame for these things.
