if you want to see how this has been going on for many years take a look at Rick Stein's "Expelled" no intelligence allowed
why do scientists have to say the king has clothes to keep their jobs when he is parading around in the nude?
they are no longer scientists as science means knowledge or truth
when truth goes under the bus then we don't really have any scientists any more
we need to stand up for objective reporting by all scientists and not have funding linked to results
