The Liberal Threat to Science

"My liberal friends sometimes ask me why I don’t devote more of my science journalism to the sins of the Right," begins John Tierney, continuing, "My friends don’t like my answer: because there isn’t much to write about" — The Real War on Science.

Mr. Tierney's article exposes the "two huge threats to science [that] are peculiar to the Left," namely "confirmation bias, the well-documented tendency of people to seek out and accept information that confirms their beliefs and prejudices," and the "dogma [that] has perpetuated a liberal version of creationism: the belief that there has been no evolution in modern humans since they left their ancestral homeland in Africa some 50,000 years ago".
