Speaking of things that give philosophy a bad name consider these words of
wisdom from Feyerabend:

 "The church at the time of Galileo was much more faithful to reason than
Galileo himself, and also took into consideration the ethical and social
consequences of Galileo's doctrine. Its verdict against Galileo was
rational and just, and revisionism can be legitimized solely for motives of
political opportunism."

No doubt there are those on this list who will try to make excuses for the
above moronic statement, but the fact remains  that most professional
philosophers think any provocative statement can make them stand out no
matter how dimwitted it is.
