If you don't agree with (or more likely, understand) the science, mock the science. A tried and true conservative strategy that supports the very argument they're mocking.

Apparently you did not read the article, which does a great deal more to demolish the nonsense than mere mocking.

Mocking the science is mostly what leftists do when they're confronted with facts. It's their first recourse, in fact.

"They do that because they were born that way."

If you say that about homosexuals, you are tolerant and realistic. If you say it about blacks, you are racist (unless you're black yourself). If you say it about women, you may or may not be sexist, depending on who is manning (er, womanning) the feminist battle stations. If you say it about men, you just might be a writer for Esquire. But if you say it about conservatives, you're a scientist.

Over the past decade, a new fad has taken hold among academics and liberal journalists: call it the new science...
