It's an exaggeration of the anti-science stance in ocpaul20's last paragraph (referring to opponents as "scientist types" is a big red flag). That's why I capitalized it: to indicate it's hyperbole. Maybe it would have been clearer if I'd written "Eeeeevvvviiiilll Scientists".

As a guy who's more skeptic than not ... Many posts here seem to evidence a total lack of understanding of what the scientific method's about or how scientists think about problems. Or why the True Believers here (hyperbole alert) mght just need us skeptics as a counterbalance to their natural tendencies to excess. Just my opinion.

This has nothing to do with why local wildlife authorities would deny that bears or cougars range in a given area. Off-topic.

I'm at fault because all the other posts in this thread are so on topic.

We have a bald eagle that shows-up in our neighborhood one week during the year. However, if someone asked me if bald eagles live in our neighborhood I'd have to say no.
