Steven Weinberg: Hey, I’m a Nobel Prize-Winning Physicist, so that Makes Me a Friggin’ Genius About Everything! Wanna Know My Call on the Fifth Race at Aqueduct? Who I Think Will Win the 2016 Election? Call My Publicist!
Yeah! Religion… like liberalism, socialism, Communism, Nazism, Fascism, anarchism, etc. Either your Nobel went to your head, or you’re unethically seeking to leverage it for fraudulent intellectual gain. Stick to physics, Weinberg!
However, to be fair to Schmuck, er, Steven Weinberg, I had profs in grad school who encouraged his sort of attitude. They were anal and neo-empiricist philosophy professors who all suffered from math envy. Thus, if you were a math whiz, they would rapturously listen to you blab away on any subject.
