The idiot says, “My generation is the best there has ever been”

Myths and anthropomorphic gods to explain natural phenomenon equals the first stages of Scientific inquiry. So it is not that the ancients refused to think of natural phenomenon logically but were thinking as logically as they were able with the information they had. They were creating logic.

The modern doctrines of science will, in time, appear antiquated and the people of the future will look upon us as illogical snake charmers. The most egotistical and ignorant of them will laugh at our assumptions and contributions and in that very laugh prove themselves foolish and nothing more then a dried leaf floating upon the surface of a great sea of human development, much like many of the dried leaves of today.

You know who you are.
