Facts and Fallacies
Where science has done its homework—or bothered to do the one thing it does best: cross-examination and update.
What has not as yet benefited from the best we have and can do, for lack of the above—or where science fails to do what it alone can.

Morality is a secondary issue in an instance where a boxer uses illegal blows.
Civilisation is in trouble whenever another big boy walks away feeling great for having pinned down a defenceless one. Kicking a child on the ground—and taking it as victory!
