"It is an extraordinary thing that unless you have a Ph.D. in some
scientific discipline, no one takes you seriously. Unfortunately, you
cannot at present obtain a Ph.D. in common sense. If you could, it
might then entitle you to point out that the prevailing world view,
which since Descartes expressly forbids the use of all the senses the
Good Lord has endowed us with and merely confines us to an unbalanced
reliance on ‘science' and rational deduction, is a classic means of
ensuring our own extinction."
