It always amazed my in my college days that so many professors went around
saying that science is not a religion and then treating their opinions
as if they were handed down directly from God. I wrote a paper disputing
Noam Chomsky on language structure once and my professor acted as if
I had blasphemed. I don't think he even read it. The subject was
enough to reject it.
