Mythicism as Conspiracy Theory

Mythicism as Conspiracy Theory January 24, 2012

That’s the title of an article in Slate by Evgeny Morozov, and there are a couple of quotes in which a simple substitution can be made so that they apply equally well to creationists, mythicists, and other denialists. Here’s an example:

“In other words, mere exposure to the current state of the scientific historical consensus will not sway hard-core opponents of vaccination Jesus’ historicity. They are too vested in upholding their contrarian theories; some have consulting and speaking gigs to lose while others simply enjoy a sense of belonging to a community, no matter how kooky.”
