How can you easily spot religion in science clothing? According to New Scientist book review editor Amanda Gefter, look for these code words:

  1. Scientific Materialism
  2. The invocation of Cartesian dualism
  3. Misguided interpretations of quantum physics (also a “New Age” giveaway)
  4. The terms “Darwinism” or “Darwinist” (scientists refer to “evolution” and “biologists”)
  5. Referring to natural selection as “blind”, “random” or an “undirected process”
