"If you werent my teacher, Id think you just deleted all my files."
-- an anonymous UCB CS student, to an instructor who had typed
"rm -i *" to get rid of a file named "-f" on a Unix system.

I believe that part of what propels science is the thirst for wonder. Its a
very powerful emotion. All children feel it. In a first grade classroom
everybody feels it; in a twelfth grade classroom almost nobody feels it, or
at least acknowledges it. Something happens between first and twelfth grade,
and its not just puberty. Not only do the schools and the media not teach
much skepticism, there is also little encouragement of this stirring sense
of wonder. Science and pseudoscience both arouse that feeling. Poor
popularizations of science establish an ecological niche for pseudoscience.
