Yes sir, the sun revolves around the earth sir

I hate beating a dead horse and I feel like we’ve shown the problem often enough, but here’s one that caught my eye:

Nobel prize winner James Watson stripped of titles after suggesting genes make black people less intelligent

Purged from academia. He spent a decade apologizing for his heretic remarks. No use.

Religious oppression is increasing, and the speed of the increase is increasing as well. That’s oppression by the ruling religion; just as the story goes that Galileo had to apologize for suggesting the earth revolves around the sun, so Watson had to apologize for suggesting genes make black people less intelligent. But in either case, once a heretic, always a heretic. Nassim Taleb at least got the memo.
