The Civil Heretic

I just read a very interesting feature at the NYT on physicist/thinker Freeman Dyson.  We need smart contrarian thinking as a balance to any ideological position and Dyson is happy to contribute.

    Nice article. I don’t care which side of the global warming side you are on. But I am more and more afraid of that we have moved from the time when scientists called their opinions \theory\ versus now they are saying it is \fact\ and no evidence to the contrary will change their opinion.

    Well said Bearman.
