Good day to everyone. This may sound like a silly question, but I'm interested in hearing some input regarding a reasoning why philosophers in general (at least, an endless amount of them on the internet) are so vehemently opposed to modern cosmological ideas. For instance, the amount of slander and hate directed at scientists/public educators like Dr. Lawrence Krauss, Dr. Neil DeGrasse Tyson and many others over the ideas of a "nothing" (quantum vacuum) or cosmological curvature seems horrendously extreme - enough to the point where it often just degrades into ad hominem attacks on a speakers clothing (in the case of the former) and public outcries as a satanist and evildoer (for the latter). I'm aware that in some cases, their faith is completely misaligned to any kind objective truth, and this is just a kind of self-defense mechanism. But in the secular philosophical social "biome", if you will, there is a nearly instant dismissal of these things with an equal amount of fervor, and I just don't quite understand it. I had a fellow academician jokingly say to me on this topic, saying something along the lines of "philosophers are jealous of our progress, since armchair rationalization gets them nowhere and they're still stuck arguing on thousand year old issues". While obviously this isn't completely true in aggregate, I'm left wondering if there is any weight to that statement. What do you think?
