Stupidity or Science. Who are you with?

I got quoted in the paper  ('The Age') whilst at the March for Science in Melbourne:

 http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/fact-over-fiction-thousands-rally-to-melbournes-inaugural-march-for-science-20170422-gvqc5q.html

The precise text is: 

Data scientist Alex Thomas, who was among the crowd, agrees.

"I'm here because I think we have to choose between stupidity and science," he said. "I think we're dealing with a very dangerous phenomena, that is the rejection of science. Although science isn't everything, it's the grounding and the underpinning of modern life and many of us wouldn't be here without it."
