RE: A different mythology?
Living in a big city with typical light pollution, I never get to see the Milky Way except on the rare occasions I'm in the country or the desert and it's a clear night. I wonder how many people on the planet have never seen it and don't even know it exists.

Religious disputes are like arguments in a madhouse over which inmate really is Napoleon.

That thought makes me weep. Weeping Seriously.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I was in my late teens before I could confidently say I knew what it was. I always thought it was just some sort of hazy optical illusion or more likely clouds.
