Science is like voting; ten thousand years of praying never cured one person of rabies, cholera, bubonic plague, or syphilis. A gradual, inexorable accumulation of real corroborative facts, tested theories, and enlightened understanding we call science, and suddenly miracles are everyday occurrences. Convince a group that they have no stake, no reason to vote, and as quick as throwing a switch, we’re all back into the Dark Ages. Together, endarkened.
