But that isn't the scientific position. That is just what you believe the scientific position is.
Here's another story for you. I'm a network engineer. Yesterday, I went to the administrative offices to check the connections because people weren't getting a good signal. The administrative secretary had some computer classes under her belt. She proceeded to spend the next half-hour telling me what I should be checking, who I should be calling, and what I should be doing, in order to get their connection back up and running.
Now that's a good story! I would like to hear the conclusion. How did you deal with that? Did you smile politely and nod, stare blankly, what?
