Quote of the Day

On the Theory of Evolution and its zealots:

A scientist who does not admit he might potentially be wrong is really a theologian.

Paul, at Wizbang

Update, 3/25: Paul recants... but I think the intended spirit of the quote still holds true.

I've yet to meet a scientist that says he (or theories) can't possibly be in error.

I've never met a religious believer who seriously thinks they might be mistaken.

Paul's words sure sound pretty, but they are essentially empty - especially since Paul has a real problem when admitting he is wrong (e.g. by defining evolution how he sees fit, not realizing speciation has been observd, etc).
