This author's view is broader, suggesting that the scientific community in
general fails to recognize and address this aspect of scientific illiteracy.

That's where the author probably goes astray. There isn't a single
scientific community in general; and methods in the different
compartments --- physical sciences, life sciences, "social" sciences.......
tend to differ significantly. You notice the author almost totally confined
his discussion to one sector --- medicine and genetical correlations with
phenotypical features.
