Bill O’Reilly calls Dawkins’ approach to education fascism

Filed under: evolution — David Jenkins @ 11:54 pm

And about time. The fact that Dawkins would like to suppress any exploration of intelligent design in the classroom is a particularly repulsive example of totalitarian scientism.


  1. The smug athiest just got a cold dose of logic -and he sure didn’t like it.

  2. Of course scientism, and the scientistic establishment, in fascist. It’s all about power and control. The “science” these people represent is about securing dogma, and preventing its questioning (real science, of course, is about questioning consensuses, thinking something new and different – this is what produces progress in the (real) search for knowledge). This scientistic attitude is one reason why (it has been suggested) the growth of human knowledge, in the future, will take place somewhere other than in the West.

  3. O’Reilly is an idiot….

    I guess some people will never understand logic…

  4. And your contribution to understanding logic is: “O’Reilly is an idiot”. Very profound.
