Default Re: Palinisms (Jacob Weisberg & Ann Althouse)

I think Weisburg makes it clear that he really wants to control the people who wish to put religion into everything. He wants to control, on some level, without proper understanding perhaps: the schools, learning, political discourse and outcomes.

Daniel Dennett says it much better. Aem Jeff probably could too. Perhaps they want the epistemology of science to be the primary metaphysical map for American institutional life, and by extension, social, moral and political obligations. I think that's why Uncle Bob Wright, his Buddhist leanings and his own metaphysics of evolutionary psychology attract so many lefty types.

Let Weisburg and the crew over at Slate fight the creationists. They're meant for each other.
