yesI place my faith in science.Read an article in yesterday's NYT about the Man. Who developed 40 vaccines including the MMR.The article said he had saved more lives than anyone inthe 20th century.

But in case any of the girls wants prayers and religion,I get the through first communion so they can attend Mass and receive the Eucharist. Julia just had her FirstCommunion last Sat. I like the sacraments but none of the church's stances on social issues.

I think science gains its greatest respect with things like what Constance wrote, when it gives opportunity to people who would have been hopeless without it
and also for its awesome! creations
and it appears as the part of knowledge that can't just be made up- as the less human based human knowledge
but in the end it's faith in scientists (since they must be critical enough) and I don't think specialization can assure greater/cleaner thinkers- so we can just hope we'll hear them arguing if there's deviation

are you saying the debate on scientific matters has also been reduced to opinion as a last resort?
but
if some disagreement is presented in a valid (according to the scientific criterion) explanation about what's been assumed too promptly, what would make the great majority disregard it (these days)? (does these days mean little even for science?)

I just read
when a book titled 100 Authors Against Einstein was released, Einstein said "Why 100? If I were wrong, one would have been enough." bounce
