Sometimes we may become disheartened when the superstitious and religiously
immoderate among us seem to have the most strident voices. But the most
encouraging thing I have recently heard was offered by Alan Alda on the
Scientific American Decade PBS show this evening:

"Of all the scientists who have ever lived, 95% are living today!"

I remember reading several accounts of the perilous position of science vs.
creationism. Well, maybe there is a quorum or a critical mass that will
turn the tide. If there is a random distribution of scientists who might be
open to PCT, then that group must be growing!



P.S. Well, probably some scientists are not as scientific as they could be,
but let's be hopeful!
