Nowhere did I say they should be believed because they are in the majority. My point is that dismissing the work of the vast majority of biologists for reasons other than the quality of that work (i.e. poisoning the well) will make it difficult to discuss those topics. In the same way, if your irrational prejudice happened to be against scientists not named "Steve", we would find ourselves severely limited when trying to discuss most topics in science.

I dont care what people's names are, I do care about the driving force behind them that controls their agenda though..
BTW , Is NOT Irrational to question people who write about things in order to support their Worldview / Philosophy... So instead of deciding whether something is true or not based on, loke you say, the "Vast Majority of Biologists" have an opinion it is true is NOT Science.... We should go by the evidence, And if EVERY Dinosaur Remnants that has EVER BEEN DATED shows measureble carbon 14 AND we see red blood cells,flexible blood vessels and collagen (2 EXAMPLES OF CORROBORATING HARD DATA) Dont you think we should draw the OBVIOUS conclusion that Dinosaurs are less than 50 thousand years old instead of trying to explain it away with idiotic ad hoc explanations like Hi-Iron content in Dino Blood allowing Dino Biotissue to have an indefinite shelf life?? I mean, talk about Stupidity...
Evolution]“…a full-fledged alternative to Christianity…Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.” Michael Ruse. Saving Darwinism from the Darwinians. National Post
“As the creationists claim, belief in modern evolution makes atheists of people. One can have a religious view that is compatible with evolution only if the religious view is indistinguishable from atheism.” Will Provine, No Free Will. Catching Up with the Vision, Ed. By Margaret W. Rossiter (Chicago: University of Chicago Press,)
“…evolution is the backbone of biology and biology is thus in the peculiar position of being a science founded on unproven theory. Is it then a science or a faith? Belief in the theory of evolution is thus exactly parallel to belief in special creation. Both are concepts which the believers know to be true, but neither, up to the present, has been capable of proof.” L.H. Matthews,
