Pick and choose

I wrote a little while back that science does not describe every aspect of human existence.

Much that we are and see and do is infused with the unspeakable complexity of our brains, bodies and their embedding in the world. Many things cannot be defined in the language of science and some things can probably not be defined at all.

Meanwhile, there is superstition in the world, and it's important to get things right. We are error prone and biased, science is not.
