S01E13 – Are conservatives anti-science?

In this episode of the Finding Common Battle Grounds podcast, we examine the question of whether conservatives are anti-science. We agree on what science is (a method for investigating the natural world), on the roles of conservatives and progressives, and that there are some scientific findings that are erroneous. But we also agree that science is self-correcting. Finally, we agree that both conservatives and progressives cherry-pick science, rejecting some scientific findings that disagree with their preexisting beliefs. This doesn’t make either group entirely anti-science, but it does mean that both groups are accurately described as anti-science at times.
