becoming an untestable religion.

"There was a big bang, and the universe really is not as young as the
measurements say, and there really aren't the ultra-large scale objects
(which can't have evolved in this time), and we can explain everything if
only you let us posit unmeasurable mass and energy in just the places we
need to fit the data ....

"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad.
You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad? said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
