GMOs - science vs belief

The last part of this is the sad part. There's anti-science faith-based thinking on the right and on the left. In both cases, ideology tends to trump science.

Of course, on the right, it's mainstream. On the left, by and large, it's not. Anti-science ideologues control the Republican Party. The Democratic Party, on the other hand, generally accepts science, even if individual Democrats sometimes don't.

That's not a reason to let the latter off the hook, but it's still a noteworthy difference.
