Oh Paul

“The science has spoken. Thimerosal is a dead issue. It is concerning. You have as a president-elect a science denialist.”  — Paul Offit, MD
Just what exactly IS a “science denialist”? Someone who doesn’t believe in the scientific method? Someone who doesn’t agree with a specific scientific conclusion? Or just someone who doesn’t happen to agree with your interpretation of certain scientific studies, facts, or logic? The underlying assumption here is that one either has to agree with the current consensus on an area of scientific investigation or he/she is a science denialist. Huh? (Oh Paul, Paul, Paul… )
