Comment Re:The Perceived Threat of Science (Score 1) 2155 2155

Guess what, science is not a democracy, voting agaist something matters shit.

Well, that is absolutely true, evolution doesn't care about what anybody thinks about it. But on the other hand it actually matters shit how the people think about science. The problem is that society doesn't rely on science but instead people and how they think. I would be dead scared living in a society where the majority of people don't believe in evolution or worse yet science as a whole.

My point is that stating that science is the definite answer doesn't change much if nobody believes it. This is taking it too its extreme, but I hope it makes my point.

Often statistics are used as a drunken man uses lampposts -- for support rather than illumination.
