NY Times: Scientists believe faith = dementia

Interesting profile on the head of the Human Genome Project, Dr. Francis Collins. He is now the director of Britain's Universal Healthcare regime.

The NY Times writer claims that many scientists believe that outspoken faith is a sign of mild dementia.

They're simply following Freud on his projection/neurosis theory of supernatural religion. But most real scientists disagree, see the NAAS surveys from circa 1890 and circa 1990.

Thanks Mr. Ox.

In my mind this citation is more a blight on the NYT than on scientists.

Welcome to the blog!
