The experimental scientist Rupert Sheldrake has described a condition called “science-ism,” or belief that science already understands the complete nature of the Universe and must only now scribble-in the details.
It is, by any stretch of the imagination, a faith-belief. The condition is characterized by people who say, “I don’t believe in God, I believe in science.”
Enter Elizabeth Warren, who has shot back at Trump’s tweet from Thursday in which the President implied that the super cold-wave engulfing much of the United States means that pulling out of the Paris Accord didn’t make the world suddenly get hotter.
Warren’s snobbish reply is full of “science-ism.” Take a gander:
I’m going to say something really crazy: I believe in science. Climate change is real and we have a moral obligation to protect this Earth for our children and grandchildren.

Trump’s light-hearted tweet that caused all the fuss:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!
