Yeah, but it is.

Earlier this week, Dr. Anthony Fauci attempted to explain why COVID cases were still on the rise in parts of the country. He praised stay-at-home orders and urged the wearing of face masks, then added another potential reason people weren’t listening to scientists who specialize in infectious diseases:
“One of the problems we face in the United States is that unfortunately, there is a combination of an anti-science bias that people are — for reasons that sometimes are, you know, inconceivable and not understandable — they just don’t believe science and they don’t believe authority,” Fauci said.
“So when they see someone up in the White House, which has an air of authority to it, who’s talking about science, that there are some people who just don’t believe that — and that’s unfortunate because, you know, science is truth,” Fauci said.
That last part seems to have really irked Graham, who took to Facebook to attack Fauci, science, and apparently evolution:
This week Dr. Anthony Fauci made the statement that “science is truth.” Really? I would beg to differ. Science may be a quest for truth, but it is certainly fallible. I’m not against science of course, but we know that scientists often disagree. As an example, the early Imperial College London coronavirus model has since proven wrong, and disputes continue today between the experts about the model used more recently in the U.S. And, man did not evolve from apes or tadpoles as many scientists say. That’s just not true — God created man and woman as the Bible says.
If America has an “anti-science bias” as the doctor said in his interview, it might be because we aren’t sure whether to trust those who are presenting their science to us. Dr. Fauci first told the American people they didn’t need to wear facemasks, then reversed himself to say that we did. Then he revealed the reason that he had said that initially was because there was a shortage of facemasks! So, the facts changed to avoid a run on facemasks? That’s not a good step toward building trust…
So to be clear Graham attacked the idea that science leads to the truth by denying the reality of evolution, and claiming that his non-scientifically based deity created all life with merely a thought.
You know I think I will go ahead and trust the guy working with facts and reality, and ignore the guy who thinks Donald Trump is the greatest president ever and that Sarah Palin would have been a great leader for America.
