[What Sets Science And The Law Apart From Religion Is That Nothing Is Expected To Be Taken On Faith. We're Encouraged To Ask Whether The Evidence Actually Supports What We're Being Told - Or What We Grew Up Believing - And We're Allowed To Ask Whether We're Hearing All The Evidence Or Just Some Small Prejudicial Part Of It. If Our Beliefs Aren't Supported By The Evidence, Then We're Encouraged To Alter Our Beliefs.]

Copernicans Quotes
