In science, it is said, nothing is sacrosanct; the most beloved doctrine can be overthrown by contradictory data. It is because of this willingness to put its feet to reality’s fires that science, like no other system of belief, has given us so much power to predict and control nature. In this way, it is unlike any religion or philosophy. Therefore, I would be very skeptical indeed of anyone who is unwilling to submit what they know to a bracing, honest scrutiny -- that, to be sure, sounds like the work of religion.
