I just wanted to thank everyone for their comments and the expanded conversation. As to Richard’s suggestion that this is all just “bad science,” I stand by my use of the word scientism. The whole point is that this is about faith, dismissing and outcasting heretics, finding the meaning of life in genes and biological reductionism, and worshipping a certain belief system. There is little in this work at this point that is science, bad or otherwise. It is religion. And, yes, there can be too much science in my opinion when it takes over to the point that what cannot be studied or measured becomes meaningless or ignored. There is much that cannot be studied or explained by science (i.e., love, art, life) and when “scientists” pretend that isn’t the case or belittle such things, we are no longer in the realm of science but instead of religion.
