Myers Attacks Scott

Apparently, Eugenie Scott gave a presentation explaining the differences between religion and science and how it is possible for them to reasonably co-exist. Of course, this is contrary to the preachings of Dawkins, so it should be no surprise that one of Dawkins' followers, PZ Myers, publicly attacks Scott and her reasonable position on his #1 Science Blog. With a clearly detectable streak of venom, ol' Steel Toes lets her have it:

Take off the comfy cardigan, Dr Scott. Scientists have a role to play in our culture, and it's not as the pleasant, soothing flim-flam artists, mumbling consolation and excuses in return for a donation on the offering plate. We're supposed to be clear-eyed and critical, even when it's easier to play the priest and lie. I think you're doing a bang-up job of accommodating the American citizenry to the fluff and nonsense of woolly religious thinking, but that's not a job that needs to be done, and it's not your job.

No, I am not one of Dawkins' "followers", and actually disagree substantially with his genecentrism.

Now, one of the problems with IDers is that they reason in terms of followers, they seem to have a lot of problems considering that there are personal points of view.

You have to fit somewhere ;-)
