Liberals love to claim that conservatives, and in particular Christians, are anti-science. In fact, many articles and books have been written on the subject. For example:
- “GOP is an anti-science party of nuts.”
- “The National Circus: Will the Anti-Science Wing Tear the GOP Apart?”
- “The ‘anti-science party.’”
- “GOP Senators Parrot Anti-Science Talking Points At Climate Hearing.”
- “Republicans Against Science.”
- “’Science Denier’ Ben Carson Denies GOP Is The Anti-Science Party.”
There are Chris Mooney’s books The Republican War on Science and The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science—and Reality.
The argument is, if something does not measure up scientifically, it should be rejected.
Most of the anti-science charge relates to man-made global warming now called “climate change” since the “there-is-no-longer-any-debate-about-global-warming” claim has fizzled. Research on this subject will show that scientists were convinced in the 1970s that global cooling was inevitable, and if you denied it you were – you guessed it – anti-science.
