On this episode of ID The Future, host David Boze discusses the ambiguous label “anti-science”. What does it mean? What are the implications? Who’s using it?
The term is being bandied about, not just in science journals and newspapers, but in the political arena as well, as typified by the recent comments of Utah governor Jon Huntsman: “The minute that the Republican party becomes the anti-science party, we have a huge problem. We lose a whole lot of people that would otherwise allow us to win the election in 2012. When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science and therefore in a losing position.”
Tune in to unpack this curious term and learn how it is shaping current debates.
