Paradoxically, people who make science their religion these days tend to have no actual grasp of science at all. Case in point: comedian Sarah Silverman defending Planned Parenthood this week with "Science is real."
Here we are on this watery, blue orb, floating in space. Infinite space crowds us in at every side. Thousands upon thousands of planets and moons interrupt the emptiness. Thousands upon thousands of stars compete against the darkness with their marvelous light.
