Sharing Carl Sagan’s Worldview on Science and Progress

The Moonbats are still flying around today, not understanding that while we welcome diverse viewpoints we have lost all toleration for those who habitually argue about things they do not understand, cannot express a coherent viewpoint, quickly resort to personal attacks when the facts of the argument are against them, and who claim tolerance while regularly shouting down those who disagree with them. Perhaps one day the Moonbat we faced today will understand why she is banned from so many sites and ostracized by those former allies she has stabbed in the back. Special commendations to KJ who took the brunt of the Moonbat attack while I was working, and yet also seeks to restore the good name of Moonbats as Robert A. Heinlein envisioned them.

As I compare the views of others, I ran across this Worldview Quiz (hat tip to Pharyngula). I score at ten on both the Progress and Science scales, placing me with Carl Sagan. If I had seen this chart before taking the test I could have saved the time as I’d have no doubt which of these people I’d score with.

Not surprisingly, George Bush, Osama bin Laden, and Pat Robertson are all clumped together at the other end of the chart. In keeping with a discussion earlier where I contrasted the Dalai Lama’s attempts to reconcile science with religion with Deepak Chopra’s anti-science writings, I note that the Dalai Lama is significantly closer to Carl Sagan and I than Chopra is.

    How fun. I love taking quizes.

    For whatever it’s worth, I came in about halfway between The Dalai Lama and Carl Sagan.

    I’m sooooooo glad I am nowhere near the Idiot Bush.

    I came in between the Dalai Lama and Bill Clinton—LOL! I would say that is about right for me.

    I came in at (9,-1) which puts me around Clinton (7,0) and Chopra (8,-3)
