Please! Tell me it's not true! Andrew Schlafly was a featured speaker at Doctors for Disaster Preparedness' July 2008 annual conference, where he spoke on "The Education of the World's Great Thinkers". --Bobbing up 12:27, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

It's true- the horror.--Bobbing up 13:00, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

So by denying what the "denialists" have to say, do you not make yourselves "denialists"? Those who are truly rational and scientific do not fear opposing viewpoints or the introduction of evidence that challenges pre-conceived notions. They also do not stoop to name-calling and shouting down those who disagree.

This article, which defames and insults serious, honest, careful scientists who are more concerned with discovering scientific truth than they are with defending "politically correct" attitudes, reads much more like the diatribe of someone who has a cherished superstition to defend at all costs, than like an objective rational description.

And yes, I'm not afraid to sign with my real name.

It's nice that you call out the article for ad hominem, then assert that we're just closeminded PC ranters.
The difference between our denial and DDP's is that the claims of the DDP aren't substantiated by overwhelming evidence; see the linked articles for why. FuzzyDogPotato (talk/stalk) 17:19, 23 June 2015 (UTC)
