Quote of the Day

From a piece in this morning's DomPost about junk science by Matt Ridley (British journalist and Conservative MP), prompted by Robert De Niro joining into the anti-vaccine brigade.

"Instead of evidence-based policy making, pseudo-science specialises in policy-based evidence making."

So true - just like most people object to Christianity for emotional reasons rather than intellectual ones.

It's surprising that the DomPost would print such a rationalist as Matt Ridley, given the daily fare of pseudoscience they serve up. Mind you, I note that Ridley didn't include his equally forthright views on climate science in this article - the DomPost wouldn't have published it if he had.

Which just about sums up the climate change fiasco!
