I care about scientific nonsense.
Obviously.
But nonsense knows no bounds, which is why we have members of a supposedly "scientific" bent who think some mystical hand is behind every chemical reaction.
Nonsense is nonsense. It makes no difference whether it dresses itself up in religious vestments or scientific lab coats. Maybe the place should be called Sense v. Nonsense (SvN).

Nonsense is nonsense whether it's universal or selective. It needs to be exposed whether it's religious nonsense or "scientific" nonsense. Some nonsensical minds lean towards science and some toward religion. That's why there's no real difference between the scientific threads and the religious ones.

Re: Question #7
Winter setting in up there in Canuckistan?
Yep. It's about -2°C with a dusting of snow on the ground.
