In some ways, the spirit of scientific inquiry has little or no resemblance to the real goal of "a system of acquiring knowledge" . Since people look to science for answers and turn science into the false religion of scientism, where "science" is a kind of entity and the final arbiter of truth .
Science is used as a political tool — the scientists themselves are often used to further political agendas. For example, Adolph Hitler attacked Albert Einstein and "Jewish physics" in 1931 by enlisting one hundred scientists to denounce him. (Einstein made a simple but strong point: "If I were wrong, then one would have been enough".)  More recently, global warming has been a political tool for the leftists' green agenda, even with the dishonest claim that it is "settled science" . Heidi Cullen embarked on a coercive campaign "advocating that broadcast meteorologists be stripped of their scientific certification if they express skepticism about predictions of manmade catastrophic global warming" despite the fact that there are many scientists who oppose global warming [6, 7].
Even so, adherents of man-made catastrophic global warming are on a campaign to bully people into accepting this politically-driven "science". In addition to bullying and ridicule, proponents utilize the logical fallacies of appeal to authority and appeal to majority . This is not only contrary to the spirit of scientific inquiry, but intolerance of the views of others, plain and simple.
Similarly, many proponents of evolutionism are bullies and bigots, especially self-appointed Internet thought police. (I must admit that I have a serious problem with bullies. I will often expose them for what they are, and stand up to them.) They range from Oxford to Weighton Road to Japan to California — everywhere. Although evolutionists claim to be good, moral people who oppose injustice, evolution does not have any basis for consistent morality ("survival of the fittest", "we are all just modified pond scum", and so forth) . So it is not surprising that there is hypocrisy in their ranks. Darwinism deniers are not allowed to have our own views, and must be re-educated. When disbelievers in evolution interpret evidence that conflicts with evolutionary worldviews, they are often called "liars" . This also stems from circular reasoning based on their "evolution is true" presuppositions.
One petty stalker in particular is unwilling and apparently unable to respect the wishes of others. When he spammed me with irrational, illogical e-mail (and having 47 CCs on an unwanted e-mail is spamming), I told him to stop and blocked him. He persisted, and continued spamming another e-mail account. After blocking him there, he started harassing me in the comments of a book review I did on Amazon!
Two examples are noteworthy. First, "If you allowed comments under your blog posts there would not be a need or wish to email you about some of them."  He has been told in no uncertain terms that I do not wish contact with him, but he insists on shoving his religion of evolutionism down my throat, and inflicting it on others. Second, "If he stops complaining about me in his blog posts (where comments aren't allowed) and on Facebook (I don't post on Facebook other than clicking on any comments I 'like') I will stop reporting those complaints here [at Amazon]!"  So, I am being blackmailed by a petulant child. Edit: I learned that I am being libeled by him in other places on Amazon [12a]. Are these the actions of a sane person? They are certainly the actions of a bully, even though he claims to oppose bullying [13 - PDF]. As others have learned in the past, when I am harassed, I just fight harder. Amazon seems to approve of this off-topic harassment. So, I am using the stalker's comments to prove my points.
Not only the Thought Police, but a preemptive strike on what I may do. This is fallacious on so many levels, and people like that are potentially dangerous. He is worried about what I may do based on his straw man view of "religion", I am concerned about what he has stated outright.
Evolutionists (especially Bill Nye fanbois, it seems) are intolerant of the views of others , and resort to bullying and ridicule  in addition to fallacies like "evolution is the consensus, believe it" . Adherents of both pseudosciences of evolutionism and catastrophic man-made global warming are thuggish bullies and intolerant of the views of others , which seriously hinders scientific inquiry.
