What do the creationist & anti-GMO platforms have in common?

Creationists and the Anti-GMO crowd (hereafter referred to as anti’s) crowd share a foundational base. Creationism, or Intelligent Design (ID) as it is known in some circles where they pretend to themselves it is a scientific theory, has been notorious at setting up evolutionary straw men that they can then easily knock them down to the delight of other believers.

 

Now, some unfamiliar with the debate may think I’m showing a picture that is a caricature of the ID movements beliefs; I’m not, this comes from within their ranks. Now, I’m not going to bother debunking their beliefs, but I just wanted you to know about it for comparison’s sake. Because, the very same images are showing up in the anti crowd, and it is in this that they share in common with our creationist believing brethren.

The two camps share common philosophical foundations, which are:

(1) the belief that they know more than the experts

(2) that intuitions trump evidence

(3) that reality should conform to our wishes and desires instead of the other way around.
