In a country where over 40% of the population believes that a magical wizard poofed the earth into existence less than 10,000 years ago, I am not surprised.

But I am ashamed.
Even if the open windows of science at first make us shiver after the cozy indoor warmth of traditional humanizing myths, in the end the fresh air brings vigor, and the great spaces have a splendor of their own - Bertrand Russell

That's what I was thinking. I have to admit, I can get them mixed up sometimes. Heck, there are times someone will say astrology and I'm not paying that much attention and my brain hears astronomy.
