I love the idea that it is labeled a kind of ignorance:) I know another scientist and he talks very much like this. Especially that facts are used a bit, but aren't what you are looking for even though non scientists think it is mostly about finding facts;)

I wish people understood more about confidence levels. I'm learning about them in school and think people who only think in terms of black and white hear scientists attach a confidence level on something and think the scientist is unconvinced and doesn't have conviction. Maybe this is why do many religious people in the US don't get science?
