Edzard Ernst Blog

Damn but I love this. Edzard Ernst blogged briefly to quote Prof. John Beddington on why intolerance of scientific stupidity and fatuity is a good thing. Check this out:
…we are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of racism.
'We are grossly intolerant, and properly so, of people who are anti-homosexual or are anti-gay in the vernacular … we are not grossly intolerant of pseudo-science, the building up of what purports to be science by the cherry-picking of the facts and the failure to use scientific evidence and the failure to use scientific method.
'We should not tolerate what is potentially something that can seriously undermine our ability to address important problems....
Read the whole thing. It's the bomb-diggidy.

Yes, I'm very "street".

Pulse is requiring registration to read anything. I'm too lazy and ornery to do it, so I guess I'll catch up with Edzard later.
