Bonus points for using "science" as a really lazy appeal to authority. Because plenty of qualified scientists clearly didn't get this particular memo.

I love the idea that "science" recognizes anything. What pronouns do Science use? Where I can I go to meet Science?

The appeals to science bring back memories of that IT Crowd episode where the boys trick Jen into believing that a black box is the entirety of the Internet. That box is what I picture when someone acts as though all of scientific inquiry can be reduced to a monolith. Somehow, I doubt the Elders of Science granted permission for these morons to invoke their name in pushing this nonsense!
