It’s great to see a few anti-GMO writers and activists come to grips with the anti-science nonsense festering within their community.

This is not necessarily or always malicious, though it often violates the norms of civilized debate, to say nothing of it’s potential human impact. I believe that opposition is a product of superstition, a misplaced faith in what GMO opponents falsely construe as “natural” or “sustainable.”
