Why fighting antiscience is important

Contributed by

In the UK, some schools are dropping teaching about the Holocaust, for fear that it might offend Muslim students.

No, I am not kidding.

This is precisely why we must not waver, must not slow, and must not lower our gaze. The forces of antiscience, antithought, antirationalism... they lurk around every corner, hide in every dark spot. But now they walk around in the daylight, and have so slowly and perniciously built themselves up in our society that we hardly notice. They have successfully boiled a live frog.

But I see them. You should too.

Thanks to PZ for finding this.
