    About Scientific Curiousity.

    There is on the one hand people studying things because they are weird. Cosmology, to dredge up an example.

    And there is on the other hand people following the internal logic of their fields to the honest conclusions. Most of Science, outside biology as currently funded.

    When Adam delved and Eve spanned, who was then a gentleman?
