<<Color me skeptical about modern science and scientists.>>

Of course there are problems with scientists. But that is because of the human condition.

Until we got science and reason we believed all sorts of crazy shit. Still do.

Science gave us the ability to go to the moon, increase our life span by 30 years, treat horrible medical conditions like small pox and polio and infection.

It is not perfect, but what it does is allows us to verify things which heretofore were myths. Like the sun being at the center of the solar system and the world being round.

We have even figured out how old the universe is and relativity and quantum mechanics. Which is astounding for a smart chimp!
