From BoingBoing

"When those inarguable triumphs stop coming, the anti-science people begin making inroads to a degree that educated people can not even comprehend. For example by denying that the moon landings ever even happened."

Of all the things that frighten me about the future, it it the willful and gleeful pursuit of ignorance rampant today. Cultures from across the planet are reaching back into the dark ages and rediscovering the pleasures of ignorance and rejecting generations of discoveries.
