Looking beyond the surface of Cathy's challenge, can we agree that the onus
really is on science? Look what we're competing against! Living in a world
of spaceships, vaccines, and computers, there are still reasonably
intelligent people who think science has no special power to discover the
truth! Memebers, we need to add good memes to the scientific method if we
want it to dispel such ignorance!
