These people scare me. They are the types who hold back medical progress. They are the ones who enforce their ignorance on others by legislating bans on teaching evolution. These are the type of people who kill people to protect animals, or threaten the families of those who do animal based medical research.
These are the type of people who burned Giordano Bruno at the stake.
These are the type of people who, not content to live their lives as they want to, instead want to spread their fear and ignorance to others, and want to force others to live in the same intellectually decrepit state as they.
Yes, when I see such willful ignorance, I get a small thrill of fear.
Perhaps I should be more scared?
