Are psychotherapists (not to be confused with Psycho, the rapist), the replacement of medieval church torturers trying to “correct” heretics?

Perhaps, but sadly I think we’re in a time when paid lobbyists, PR agents, and propagandists (masquerading as journalists) employed by multi-billion dollar corporations are the replacement for actual scientists.

If only…

In my school experience I had several teachers in science class through the years, but only one of them understood science.

Logically, scientifically, reasonably, yes.

Scientists are to theologians as surgeons are to barbers. Any preference?
