I wonder if liberals have any idea how ridiculously condescending they sound when they posit and posture that they have cornered the market on 'science' and 'rational thought' pretending it's a justification to be antagonized by hope and provoked by optimism … having largely failed Biology so badly as an interest group. While 'hope' isn't a plan … it is essential to good mental health and survival. See the problem?
Make no mistake. This 'sciency' pose isn't about 'science'.
This is an anti-Christian dog whistle.
