"the reference to quantum physics in support of free will"

I'm rather skeptical of that myself. But I have to wonder, does she then believe there is no such thing as free will? Has she considered the moral implications of that?

In addition, Gefter listed concepts and emphases that she felt betray a hidden agenda: an emphasis on complex molecular machines,

“It is crucial to the public’s intellectual health to know when science really is science. Those with a religious agenda will continue to disguise their true views in their effort to win supporters, so please read between the lines.”...

That's like global warming where tree hugging socialist Luddite scum vermin hide their agenda with dubious theory.

She didn’t include a “How to Spot an Atheist Agenda” chapter.

I wonder why that is.

I was researching this topic and bumped into this.

Just FYI for those who are interested.

Bottom line: “It is crucial to the public’s intellectual health to know when science really is science. Those with a religious agenda will continue to disguise their true views in their effort to win supporters, so please read between the lines.”...

Those with an agenda will disguise their true views using science as the smokescreen.

Recognizing when science is really science can only help.

Motive Mongering: Does It Belong in Science?

What's her motive I wonder?

She's all bent out of shape about worrying about other's motives, but doesn't seem to consider that she's got her own.

Amanda Gefter, a book reviewer and science editor, felt the need to warn the world about the creationists. She wrote a blog entry at New Scientist called “How to spot a hidden religious agenda.”

What's her agenda in warning people about creationists?
