Just as religion has the "Problem with Evil", I believe scientists have the
"Problem with Idiots". How can we make decisions or influence people who
don't even understand what we are talking about? How can we choose the best
course of action when most people are scared to try anything new? I would
love to jump on the bandwagon to wipe out false religions and incorrect
thinking. But we can't even agree in this forum on everything. There is no
way that a nation-wide or world-wide consensus will ever come up with the
options I want.
