Our training differs. Mine is that tautologies can be necessary, powerful things
Tautologies are what they are. They are powerful to those that find them so, and if ever they’re deemed necessary, it’s only to those that so deem. Certainly they’re not science, since only science can be science.

Although our training has differed, I suspect our chosen environments haven't so much, explaining why we do see an assortment of things similarly, e.g. AGW as something less than science, religion as necessary, intelligence as heritable, NS as little more than a tautology, etc.
