It seems most everyone needs something to believe in. Perhaps the harder you work to believe in something the more unreasonable you become in debating the premises upon which it is founded. If you think religious people and Egyptologists are unreasonable try talking to scientists about the nature of math and science just don't talk about the legitimacy of applying experimental knowledge to the real world or extrapolating experimental results for application to real world events and processes.
Somehow or other scientists never noticed that experts don't agree before or after the fact and they won't want want you telling them why.
The state of science and state of the art are so bad it's a wonder there's still technological progress. We live in a world where there are an infinite number of pyramids built with an infinite number of ramps and the Pope can see the future. Nobody wants to hear otherwise.
