Sounds of silence

In terms of origins & a secular world view…

Science seems to excuse itself on the basis of not knowing yet, or relying heavily on conjecture. It may point to fossils but I have yet to see a program that honestly & objectively discusses the dubious nature of the millions & millions of claims. Usually it’s not knowledge that speaks for itself but it’s the procession of the peer review process that gets all the adoration & praise. The media in its various forms also showers the parade in positive affirmation, but rarely discusses the contradictions & false claims.

So science can be extremely quiet or deliberately misleading as it is marketed in the public sphere. Its followers are quick to point out the failings of religion but not so loud when it comes to its own backyard. If it were politics or religion shouts of hypocrisy would flare up the scene.

Simon & Garfunkel

.Paul Simon took 6 months to write the lyrics, which are about man's lack of communication with his fellow man. He averaged one line a day.
