Some people don't put as much trust in science either.
Scientific history is full of mistakes made from erroneous beliefs.

I don't believe that it is a worthwhile endeavor to say all BDers are lying thieves. Life is too short to take that approach. I know a number of them and I like them as people, not going to hate on them just because thy like something I don't care about. I like lots of things other people don't care about and I could care less what people think about it.

I guess for me Steve Martin had it right:

"It's so hard to believe in anything anymore. I mean, it's like, religion, you really can't take it seriously, because it seems so mythological, it seems so arbitrary...but, on the other hand, science is just pure empiricism, and by virtue of its method, it excludes metaphysics. I guess I wouldn't believe in anything anymore if it weren't for my lucky astrology mood watch."
