By Richard Carrier Phd on history of science.

"One might object and say, "You are much too vague about what these mysterious 'scientific values' are that Christianity abandoned and came to accept only with difficulty and never universally." Well, then let it be known what I mean. By phrases like "scientific ideals," "scientific values," "scientific mindset," I do not mean potentially dogmatic activities like observing the movement of the stars or performing textbook surgery, but a system of beliefs that produces advances in knowledge, including a belief that public evidence and verifiable reason trump all authority in explaining what is and can be, that persuasion by appeal to observable evidence and sound logic is the only valid means of gaining consensus about the truths of this world, that this requires embracing everyone's intellectual freedom to accept, reject, or propose any idea they please, and that it is valuable and good to devote your life in this way to the pursuit of progress in understanding any aspect of nature or existence. Those are the scientific values of which I speak."

The philosophy of freedom = liberalism as originally defined is: Liberty and justice for all, above all. Our governments fundamental job is to protect freedom, not tell us what to do or what not to say or how to say it.
