Michael Specter explains denalism is dangerous

Michael Specter,  author of his recent book Denialism explains in his TED lecture why the fear of science itself is doing modern society no good and it is dangerous. I don’t mean to add words to Mr.Specter’s mouth but I do think that this type of denialism can lead to a “New” Dark Ages, where science is basically denigrated and “magic” elevated. Trust me nobody in their sane mind wants to go there. Those once in Armstrongism with the opppressive so-called “healing”  (no doctors and medicine) doctrine were already there and are probably the first ones (and they rightfully should) who will fight like hell not go back.
