16. I'm wondering how you've noted this being so prevalent among scientists?
Edited on Mon Nov-21-11 06:59 PM by HuckleB
(Especially since it seems anathema to science, and is noted by others, such as myself, at least not compared to those who push pure belief.)

On that note, I'm curious as to why you use the term "belief," when that term has little to do with the concept of science.
