As I pointed out, the argument was never made that any atrocities were committed to defend science; please leave that straw man alone. What makes you think that none of them were committed in the name of science? For example:
* Mengle's twin studies
* Sims' medical experiments
* Wentworth's spinal taps
* The San Quentin prison experiments
* The Noguchi syphilis experiments
* Tuskegee syphilis experiments
* The Illinois State Hospital malaria experiments
* The Guatemala STD experiments
* The US Army biological and DoD radiological experiments
* The CIA's drug experiments
* The Ohio State Prison experiments
* The Holmesburg State Prison experiments
What is it about these experiments which convinces you that they were not carried out in the name of science? Is there any evidence that they were not made with the purpose of advancing scientific knowledge? When I read for example that a doctor's experiments were conducted for the purpose of discovering 'the secret of how healthy bodies fight the invasion of malignant cells', or how another doctor's scientists were conducted to learn 'how the skin protects itself against chronic assault from toxic chemicals, the so-called hardening process', does that mean that the experiments weren't really made in the name of science, they were just made because the doctor was a cruel and evil person who liked making other people suffer?
I'd also like to ask again your opinion on what goes through the minds of scientists who create chemical and biological weapons. As a scientist, can you provide any insight? Why is it that scientists have not bound themselves with an ethical code akin to the Hippocratic Oath with regard to human harm and suffering?
Most of the religious killings such as the wars between Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, Jews etc are explicitly in defence of said religions, or against the infidels, even when cast as wars of territory or politics.
and manay of the practitioners of those faiths would still believe they were right today. and they still go on: in India, Egypt, Pakistan, Israel/Gaza, Holland, Ireland, Afghanistan, Iraq, Philippines, etc, people still kill in the name of religion.
This isn't in dispute. It seems you want to change the subject.
