Science vs. Religion

This is funny and a bit true.

But scientists (and the religious) would do well to remember Nietzsche:

1) Causes can never be proven, only inferred.

2) The genealogy of knowledge suggests that theories and dominant understandings change over time.  However, they rarely revert to what religious people think.  Most knowledge and theories are on a trajectory, and as this pic suggests, religious thought on science is on the same trajectory, just way behind.
