Comment 15 by Rawhard Dickins - What on earth is wrong with the word "science"? I read the other day somewhere that it only became an english word sometime in the middle of the 19th century. I think that it is a great word. We are in real trouble if we have to subsitute it because of political correctedness.

While on terminology - I am starting a movement to use "modern" instead of "western" when discussing matters to do with civilised and progessive versus backwardness. I think that the word "west" inserts a barrier that cannot be surrmounted. Modern is a condition that most people could be persuaded to aspire towards.

This is an incredibly important event. I do so hope that it goes well.
