Geoffrey Hinton on How There Are Never New Religions

Here:

" I think that’s what differentiates science from religion. In science, you can say things that seem crazy, but in the long run they can turn out to be right. We can get really good evidence, and in the end the community will come around."

Because it has simply never been the case that someone came along and suggested a new religion and people wound up adopting it.
