Response to Egalitarian Thug (Reply #63)

Tue Aug 7, 2012, 12:13 PM

70. Scientists didn't decide to drop the Bomb.

Politicians and military personnel did.

True science (not crackpot things like Lysenkoism and eugenics) is value-neutral, interested in knowledge for its own sake, and based on rational inquiry. The uses to which such knowledge is put is another issue, but don't blame scientists for that.
