The secular inquisition

Dennis Prager writes on WND:

In the year 2005, nearly four centuries after Galileo was forced to recant observable scientific facts about our solar system, the president of Harvard University was forced to do a similar thing. He was compelled to apologize for advancing an idea about men and women supported by scientific research and likely to be true.

You know it’s getting completely out of hand when a female English professor is condemning the head-in-the-sand anti-scientism on the part of American academia in the New York Times. The ironic thing is that this dogmatic professoriat considers itself to be following the tradition of Galileo, when in reality they are imitating the most anti-intellectual aspects of the pre-Enlightenment Catholic Church.
