Candidate Bloomberg

From NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s graduation address at JHU in Baltimore:

Each one of you has had two important principles deeply embedded in you through your association with this amazing institution: An unwavering allegiance to the power of science and a profound commitment to use that power to help people. And this is a good thing, because now more than ever, these two fundamental concepts are being ignored, or are under attack.

Oh really?

That isn’t exactly (or even remotely) the detached, careful language of the scientist, but the emotive, inspiring language of the preacher, the prophet—not of science, but of scientism. Scientism is the belief that all answers of any significance can be answered and best addressed by science.

Oh man. Carl Olsen left only a smoldering rubble at the link above. Christians aren’t always so brutal.
