Proudly secular

Many people get confused about what a properly "secular" state should look like (the UK is not one BTW) It's not about promoting or establishing the religion of the majority, it's about promoting (or persecuting) NONE by maintaining a separation of state machinery and religions (or lack of) so that theocracy or atheistic totalitarianism becomes impossible.

Good luck with where the science goes. You've more chance of religious people taking notice of it than politicians. Science is about establishing truth by examining hyptheses and changing your hypotheses if they are proven wrong. So any overlap with politics is going to be slim in the extreme.

Took a seminar the other week and there were five vicars on the front row. All maths, phyics, engineering grads. Not a politician among them.
