Hi Rich
You wrote
"But on the whole scientists and educators are pretty honest a self-policing. Just think of where science would be if they had the ethics of politicians and/or lawyers. It's best to keep both science and religion away from politics in order for each to flourish."

Now you write:
"The advancement of science has been based on the publication of papers that have had peer review.

I hope you will grant me that peer review amonuts to self-policing.

I also hope you grant me that science has advanced.

If so, then I believe I have made the case for science. "

If you are defending the original proposition,I think it is still necessary to show that science and education are less political than the legal systemm and better at self-policing. If it is obvious to you, it should be even easier to prove. Will you walk us through it?
