A fair denial

I was watching an episode on Nova on UNC TV that showed the details of the court battle concerning intelligent design. The more I think about it the more it seems fair to me that people who deny science to accept religion as their savior should be denied the bnefits of science in their everyday life. The intelligent design folks should be asked to go their creator for a cure to cancer or to AIDS. On a similar note, the republicans shoudl be denied the benefits of the bailout package as they opposed it - an idea touted by Stephen Colbert as well!

Why should such people who deny or oppose certain ideas be given the benefits of the ideas themselves. The extreme free market funamentalists who believe government can only play a negative role should be allowed to fend for themselves in the absence of a market structure that the government helps support. So and so forth .. deny the benefits to those who make those arguments based on the very benefits they receive.
