Thanks Pat, I added it to my list. I think there is an indigenous descriptive science - strong awareness of plants and how to treat them to make them edible etc. - but it's only a small fraction of what we have discovered through the Enlightenment. Galileo was persecuted for questioning religious dogma and now 400 years later Frances is persecuted for questioning a new religious dogma, that we must tiptoe around the sensibilities of minorities. Halfway through reading McWhorter's book, see the list. He calls them The Elect. I'm forming a new organisation, OWM (Old White Men), could you give me a hand designing the flag?
