This is a great interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson. I thought I would post a link as we all recently had such a great discussion about science and scientists.
Quotes from the article:
"As an educator, I just try to educate people, so that they know how they need to see the world as science has come to reveal it."
"There are people who somehow think that scientists speak for what they want to be true, rather than what is true, and that we have a way to decide what is true and what is not. Many people who are in denial cherry-pick the results of science such that it is resonant with their philosophies, be it political philosophy, social philosophy, religious philosophy, philosophic philosophy—it doesn’t matter! If you cherry-pick science so that it resonates with your belief system, you are not understanding how science works."
