Science is the great antidote to the poison o.. Adam Smith Quotes

Science is the great antidote to the poison of enthusiasm and superstition.

@ashiqsir Before science was established as a proper method to use when approaching life’s mysteries, enthusiasm and superstition (as well as emotional excess) often ruled the day. This lead to such human tragedies as witch hunts and worse. Humans have always been enthusiastic and emotional creatures, and superstitions flow naturally when emotion meets unfettered intelligence. Science, and the principles thereof, help reduce the enthusiasm, help hold the emotions at bay, and help banish superstitions with logic.
