When Galileo challenged religious orthodoxy with science, he was shown the rack. When Prof. David Nutt did it, he was merely shown the door. So that’s progress then.
I don’t normally use this blog to promote Chalkface products, but I think I might be permitted a small boast on this occasion. We have by policy always produced drug-education materials that educate in a balanced way that respects your students’ intelligence and does not fall for the government’s Daily Mail-inspired hysteria. See for yourself.
One response to “Drugs education: science vs. orthodoxy”
What on earth has the David Nutt story to do with religious orthodoxy?
He has fallen foul of a government led by a failed Presbyterian (OK, he’s the son of a minister, but when was the last time he went to church?) and dominated by the extremely non-religious Mandelsonians. I don’t see that we Christians can be held at all accountable this time.
Or is this just an example of the lazy Dawkins/Harris/Hitchens way of automatically equating all things reactionary with all things religious??
