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.
