Big Difference Between Science and Politics/Religion

In sci­ence it often hap­pens that sci­en­tists say, “You know that’s a real­ly good argu­ment; my posi­tion is mis­tak­en,” and then they would actu­al­ly change their minds and you nev­er hear that old view from them again. They real­ly do it. It does­n’t hap­pen as often as it should, because sci­en­tists are human and change is some­times painful. But it hap­pens every day. I can­not recall the last time some­thing like that hap­pened in pol­i­tics or religion.
–Carl Sagan, astronomer and writer (1934–1996)
