29. Actually, it's a very similar topic.
Racism, and pseudointellectualism.

"A well read person can only conclude that the scholarly community in his specialty is divided and I have no idea what the percentage split is."

A well read person concludes that eugenics is a bad joke, and a pox on science and the scholarly community, and has been for the last eighty years. The percentage split? About 100/0.

"If you deny that division, then I strongly suggest you study more about the issue raised in the OP."

You know, I somebody told me the same thing just the other day. He was convinced there were plenty of scientists who still had doubts about global warming.

Suggest I study? What's on the suggested reading list? The bell curve?

The issue raised in the OP? The issue raised in the OP is that CNN's got white supremacists on.
