I think this piece almost perfectly sums up why I struggle not to become Quiet and Sarcastic* with anti-science people.
You stare into your high definition plasma screen monitor, type into your cordless keyboard then hit enter which causes your computer to convert all that visual data into a binary signal that’s processed by millions of precise circuits, which is then converted to a frequency modulated singal to reach you wireless router where it is then converted to light waves and sent along a large fibre optics cable to be processed by a super computer on a mass server which then sends that bit you typed to a satellite orbiting the earth that was put there through the greatest feats of engineering and science, all so it could go back through a similiar pathway to make it all the way here to my computer monitor 15,000 miles away from you just so you could say
“Science is all a bunch of man made hogwash.”
Although I must admit, I thought that was going to end with ‘so you could post amusingly-titled photos of your cats.’**
