Speaking of which, technology is inherently evil and is the exclusive province of the Bad Guys. They're the ones with the robots, factories, cyberpunk megalopolises and floating battle stations, while the Good Guys live in small villages in peaceful harmony with nature.

->It's scientifically impossible for the bumblebee to fly; but the bumblebee, being unaware of these scientific facts, flies anyways.
-->--'''Mike Huckabee''', 2008 U.S. Presidential nominee

->Unbelievers in religion who think science can save the world are possessed by a fantasy thatís far more childish than any myth. The idea that humans will rise from the dead may be incredible, but no more so than the notion that 'humanity' can use science to remake the world...Myths canít be verified or falsified in the way theories can be. But they can be more or less truthful to human experience, and Iíve no doubt that some of the ancient myths we inherit from religion are far more truthful than the stories the modern world tells about itself.

->It should be noted that a lot of Nina's personal beliefs are, quite frankly, horseshit. Her new age babblings about a cosmic goodness are overbearingly trite and she's also one of these nutbags who thinks AIDS is an innately benign condition and that it's [[ConspiracyTheorist actually AIDS medication that is killing everyone]] (Her and [[Music/{{Nirvana}} Dave Grohl]].)

->Instead of having public and private research dollars aimed at solving long-term problems posed by something like Ebola, we have a pharmaceutical research complex that literally spends more on coming up with solutions to [[SkewedPriorities erectile dysfunction and male-pattern baldness]] than Ebola containment and eradication...Rather than our society heeding the wise counsel of scientific and technical experts, we now deride, distrust and defund them because they are perceived as [[SlobsVersusSnobs threatening, know-it-all elites]] who offer opinions little better than that of the often misinformed common man.

->You would think [[Creator/OprahWinfrey Oprah]] learned her lesson after Series/DrPhil''. That maybe she would be more particular about the kinds of medical professionals she hoisted onto a pedestal. And at first, [[Series/TheDoctorOzShow Dr. Oz]] seemed to be fairly legit...But if history has taught us anything, it's that to be a part of Oprah's [[KnowNothingKnowItAll Board of Medicine Hearsay and Misinformation]] you have to believe much more in anti-science and faith-healing than actual science-based medicine. And Mehmet Oz was apparently born for a position on that prestigious council of bullshit.

->In many ways, this is a new golden age of human sacrifice....The child who dies in agony because his parents believe dialysis is 'against God's will' is no less dead than a child burned at the altar of Molech. In fact, his death was infinitely more cruel and unnecessary (and often even more agonizing), since children were usually only sacrificed in pagan times during periods of grave social crisis, such as droughts or plagues. The ancients didn't know any better--people today have no excuse.
