Ah!  Now I get it.  You seem to be reasoning in binary categories.
Either you are a bigot or not.  Either something is science or not.
Let me extrapolate a bit: either someone is an idiot or a genius.
Which one are you?  (SCNR...)

And putting irony aside: *if* you claim that if someone is even *a
tiny bit* bigoted, then he can be called a bigot, could you please
tell me who is *not* a bigot?

And here's a solution to your exercise: Rusi also said "in my
experience", which you conveniently omitted from your "quotation", and
also he used the words "scientific types", which is not exactly the
same as "scientists" - as you "quoted" him.

And, you silently ignored my second question.  How convenient.

I have to admit that it is the first time I see this definition of
"faith", and I wouldn't agree with it.  This closes the discussion (I
hope so at least, I have some work to do, you know).

Best,
