Now its not hard to see how that scientific evidence could be misused. That doesn’t make the science bad - it makes the misuse of the science bad.

That's exactly what many of us creationists keep saying but when we state that we're accused of being anti-science, knuckle dragging, talibani-type, neanderthals who want to drag the world back to the dark ages.

It's the reflex reaction of true believers of a rubber science. By pointing out the rubbery nature of their rubber science, you are "impeach[ing] the credibility of modern science"!! In 1930, Pope Piux XI condemned all the causes dear to the eugenicists, as any decent human should, Pope or not, Catholic or otherwise. The reaction then was the same reaction now. This is from Eugenics Review 23 (1931)...

"... the Pope delivers an uncompromising ultimatum not only to eugenists, but to all who seek to order their own affairs in the light of science and human judgement. It is a defiant return to mediaevalism... at the beginning of this survey it was written advisedly that the Encyclical was a return to the Middle Ages. Its mediaevalism is carried so far as to ignore all anthropology, all history not contained in Genesis, and to attack not only the practice of eugenics, but also the underlying biological bases. Not only is current biology specifically attacked, but an onslaught is made on the whole texture of science and the liberty of thought...

On Catholicism, Eugenics Review, v23:1, 1931

Tap the knee, it jerks.
