That arresting title is from Michael Crichton’s (yes, that one) January 2003 Caltech lecture on science and politics. I thought it was going to be a dull read, but it was fascinating. No, Mr. Crichton doesn’t believe in aliens, but he does assert that the disease of willing-to-believe-anything that has long infected vast swaths of the populace has come to the small community of Science. An incredible essay.
