Ok, let's pause from the latest thread invasion of the repugnant anti-science lobby (Mr. One Note in case it isn't obvious) and instead focus on remembering a man who died recently.  Don Glaser invented one of the most important devices used by particle physicists during the last century: the bubble chamber.        
  Before spouting off, try reading.      
Respone by Marcott. In addition to the information presented by Marcott, Tamino has presented several clear responses.Make that six excellent posts as of today. Here are the rest:http://tamino.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/for-the-record/http://tamino.wordpress.com/2013/04/02/too-little-time/http://tamino.wordpress.com/2013/04/03/smearing-climate-data/From the last post after a robust analysis:
Fantastic! Kepler (the space telescope) has helped us discover an Earth-sized white dwarf star around which a larger red dwarf star orbits. How? A ramification of Einstein's Theory of General Relativity--gravitational microlensing. Spacetime is bent by the large gravitational pull of the white dwarf and caused the light of the red dwarf to be focused as the white dwarf transited. Awesome. Science is real--and the universe is so much more amazing than the scribblings...
Do you believe that the last paragraph in the article may have any truth to it?
We know more today than we did yesterday. We will know more tomorrow than we did today. Thanks, science.
  Yeah, better just oversimplify and lie about what science is and instead listen to ravings of ancient desert dwellers in a moldy tome.  
Time has it right.  It's still not too late to drop your hate.    
It doesn't imply that they would have to accept either outcome.  They may accept one and believe that the other will never truly happen--utterly rejecting the other-- even if they are wrong about that assessment.     Of course, there was also this:
