Godwin vs Mad Scientists

As many of you know, I’m a scientist. Specifically, these days I’m a many-body quantum chemist. However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t keep up with interesting developments in other fields of science. As many of you also know, I’m a reasonably staunch liberal. I enjoy arguing with conservative wackos. I enjoy arguing with rational conservatives too, but the wackos are really much more fun. This week, while doing my duty, I was called (for the first time in a long time) a “Mad Scientist.” Also, I won the argument, as the first response to my post allowed me to invoke Godwin’s Law #FTW.
