For whatever reason there's a growing trend these days to cast scorn and blame down on our ancestors as if somehow it will make them look more enlightened. From my experience the more someone points their finger and casts blame, they're just trying to avoid people from looking at and scrutinizing them. Not to mention it's just petty and childish.
Not recent, self-righteous Christians have been using the 'We have sinned, Lord' for ages in order to pontificate and hector people into behaving in a manner they consider desirable. Sci is using a very old, dogeared playbook.
