Hmm …

 National - Robert Wright - Creationists vs. Evolutionists: An American Story - The Atlantic. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

On the whole, I agree. Where I disagree is equating skepticism about global warming (let's drop weasel phrases like "climate change" — the climate is changing even as I write; that's what it does) with anti-scientism (come to think of it, there are plenty of good reasons to be anti-scientism; scientism and science are hardly the same things). Freeman Dyson is skeptical regarding global warming. He can hardly be regarded as anti-science (which is the term Wright should have used).
