Bonus Quotation of the Day…

in Reality Is Not Optional, Scientism, The Future

… is from page 2 of the 5th edition (1966) of Karl Popper’s 1945 study, The Open Society and Its Enemies:

Can we expect to get more than the irresponsible reply of the soothsayer if we ask a man what the future has in store for mankind?

DBx: So true. Yet the world is over-populated with soothsayers, largely because it is overpopulated with people who not only swallow soothsaying silliness, but who positively demand that they be force-fed such absurd delusions.
