The problem comes when, in order to win our acceptance, double-talk is used to pretend that a cult is something other than what it is.
Theodosius Dobzhansky and Ashley Montagu wrote in 1947, “Race differences arise chiefly because of the differential action of natural selection on geographically separate populations.”
On race, scientists followed Darwin’s thinking until religious and civil rights leaders, not other scientists, ultimately shamed them out of it.
Science, the dominant way of knowing of our age, now finds itself caught between a rock and (very) hard place.
Savor the irony: Turning off your critical intellect makes you a “smart puppy.”
