Jim, care to back *any* of this up with any actual facts, rather than just a rant?You are misusing the word rant. Jim's post was not bombastic or excited enough to qualify as rant:
1 : to talk in a noisy, excited, or declamatory manner
2 : to scold vehemently
transitive senses : to utter in a bombastic declamatory fashion
And when a person is expressing attitudes and values, facts are irrelevant. For instance, if I were to say that I can't stand people with an eastern European accent, no one could intelligently demand that I provide facts. The fact is that I feel that way. And the fact is that Jim feels that way about scientists who forget where science leaves off and where religion begins.
