SORRY FOR SCREAMING; MY COMPUTER WON’T TURN OFF FROM HEBREW UNLESS I’M IN ALL CAPSֱֱֱ AND I DON’T KNOW HOW TO MAKE AN EXCLAMATION POINT דכגילדשכיחלדךכיJUST FOR EXAMPLE…ׂIT DOESN’T SAY ANYTHING, DOES IT.

In his 1984 book, The Limits of Science, the biologist Peter Medawar coined the term “bunkrapt” to describe people infatuated with “bunk,” meaning religious beliefs, superstitions and other claims lacking empirical evidence. “It is fun sometimes to be bunkrapt,” Medawar wrote. That’s a nice way of putting it.
