Oh dear sweet
Oh dear sweet Christ.
Claiming ignorance of things that we are intrinsically ignorant of is fair. Claiming knowledge of said things is unfair. Telling people that they don’t know is fair. Telling people that you DO know is unfair. Dawkins isn’t calling for a fucking Crusades redux where we run rampant over Jerusalem distributing books by him and Hitchens. It has nothing to do with “give it to them as good as they give it to us.” THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE, since we admit prima facie that we could be wrong.
And yes, I will condescend to self-righteous assholes that seek to derail medical research that could save my kid’s lives some day because they’re fucking squeamish about blastocysts. Don’t like the treatment? Don’t take it – otherwise, STFU and get out of science’s way.
