Repeat again: science is not superstition

Superstition can be safely confined to categories like religion and luck, right?

I mean... it couldn't be a pervasive thought process that can infect any area of our thinking! Especially not, dear gods, our sainted Science.


The dig at Kents Cavern, Torquay, also unearthed a 15,000-year-old spearpoint, known as a "sagaie", which is made from reindeer antler from the same era.

The site has already played a key role in helping to unlock the secrets of the past - previous excavations there have revealed that humans have been on earth longer than the previously estimated time of 6,000 years.

But I thought it was our superstitious Bibles that told us the earth was 6,000 years old. We can't have science insisting that humans are only 6,000 years old. Especially when, as the article reveals, we don't really know much about what happened during that time.
