“Religion, not political predispositions or political elite discourse, generates conflict over science” Seriously?!!!

Okay, I’ll get to this but not for a bit.  Maybe one or more of our 14 billion readers can read it in meantime and report in comments field?

As you can see from the abstract, the basic claim is that neither political predispositions nor the positions of political elites contribute much to conflicts over science relative to the contribuiton that religion makes.

I’ll admit that I have priors very strongly opposed to this thesis.  But I’ll do my best not to let those infect my likelihood ratio as I examine the authors’ evidence.

In the meantime, I’d be grateful as I’m sure billions of others would be for anyone else’s assessment.
