In a letter written by a staff editor of Scientific American
, its been admitted that evolution itself is a fraud, and that they, along with
possibly other major science media outlets, have been horribly and wrongly biased in favour of things like evolution, global warming and such and even
terribly biased against things like the missile defense program.
In retrospect, this magazine's coverage of socalled evolution has been hideously one-sided. For decades, we published articles in every issue that
endorsed the ideas of Charles Darwin and his cronies. True, the theory of common descent through natural selection has been called the unifying
concept for all of biology and one of the greatest scientific ideas of all time, but that was no excuse to be fanatics about it. [...]
Moreover, we shamefully mistreated the Intelligent Design (ID)
theorists by lumping them in with creationists. Creationists believe
that God designed all life, and that's a somewhat religious idea. But
ID theorists think that at unspecified times some unnamed superpowerful
entity designed life, or maybe just some species, or maybe just some of
the stuff in cells. That's what makes ID a superior scientific theory:
it doesn't get bogged down in details. [..]
Good journalism values balance above all else. We owe it to our readers to present everybody's ideas equally and not to ignore or discredit theories
simply because they lack scientifically credible arguments or facts. Nor should we succumb to the easy mistake of thinking that scientists understand
their fields better than, say, U.S. senators or best-selling novelists do. Indeed, if politicians or special-interest groups say things that seem
untrue or misleading, our duty as journalists is to quote them without comment or contradiction. To do otherwise would be elitist and therefore wrong.
In that spirit, we will end the practice of expressing our own views in this space: an editorial page is no place for opinions. Please visit the link provided for the complete story.
They will have to answer to the EAC for breaking ranks like this. We'll have to make people think its an april fools joke or some thing.
I mean there is no EAC.
