An interesting take on this:
If idiots can use scientific language to gull over desperate people, then why don’t we use arcane religious language to placate the religious?
Look, you can say, “The theory of evolution demonstrates that a population of organisms that interbreeds and has fertile offspring will grow modifications in their genes, some of which will prove beneficial.”
Or…. you could say, “Our priests tell us that our understanding of God’s thinking shows that a population of beloved creatures that begets will cause God-inspired innovations! Some of which cause animals to be damned to the fires of extinction! And others which uplift them to the apex of predation!”
Look, we don’t have to believe it, any more than any number of the charlatans selling killer nostrums do. But we just change the language a little bit to ensure that it works for us!
