Mooney tells us how to do science again

Ophelia Benson is very good on this issue. The problem with the accomodationist stance is not that it sucks up to religion (although I personally find that distasteful), but that its practitioners insist on telling everyone else how to behave. They seem to think that there is a clear political agenda in science and that all scientists should rally around this cause and adjust our behaviour to best achieve it.

I don't know about you, but I never seem to get invited to the meetings where all this is decided.
