Scientism corrupts itself with bogus research

See:

http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2011-03/uobc-dap032511.php

Article reads: Researchers at the University of British Columbia and Union College (Schenectady, N.Y.) have found that people’s death anxiety can influence them to support theories of intelligent design and reject evolutionary theory. Existential anxiety also prompted people to report increased liking for Michael Behe, intelligent design’s main proponent, and increased disliking for evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins.

You can’t ask for a better example of an arrogant ideology driving a presumed science that is unable to distinguish itself from mere scientism.
