Science works, B**ch!

Scientists killed Amazon Indians to test race theory.

A couple of points.

1.  Color me skeptical that anyone in the 1960s would have contemplated this kind of research. I could be wrong, but my sense is that this kind of thing would have been unthinkable so soon after the scientific horrors of World War II.

2.  On the other hand, science - like atheism - does not have a moral schedule of values.  We don't look for morals in or with science. Science is utilitarian and indifferent to values that cannot be materially measured. For science - and atheism - values have to come from outside.
