“Physics is not religion. If it were, we’d have a much easier time raising money.”–Leon Lederman
I’d bet that if physicists could raise money the way televangelists do, they wouldn’t use it to build themselves mansions and buy themselves private jets. Well, OK, maybe if the mansion was on Mars and the private jet could fly them there with a lab full of experiments. Moral: be careful what you believe in, you might have to pay for it.
