image for Superstition is indistinguishable from Science Miss Maple's cup of coffee

The progress is upon us and it shows. As some super star philosopher have said, sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from miracle. Now we can add to it that sufficiently advanced superstition is indistinguishable from science.

As Agatha Christie astutely observed, the superstition these days comes in closes of science - this probably why the truth must be naked.

It has taken time for us to get around, but we've get the idea. Miss Maple was so kind to look into this business for us and promised to be discreet and keep police out of the loop for now, as no forced entry appeared to be involved.

After a few computer literacy lessons she was able to type with one finger and use the mouse quite well. The rest was easy, with that wonderful Internet and what have you.

In a week I met miss Maple in a coffee shop. Her cheeks were more red than usual, but I do not think she had that much brandy in her coffee.

You are not going to believe young man, how much Ahatha was right, whispered she with excitement. Sure I had to brush out on my Physics and the rest of it, smiled old lady. It is not my business to tell you what to do, but here are the facts. She has passed a napkin with pretty long list of terms, headed "Superstitions, Science Style." In the beginning I could read:

Quantum Computing
Entanglement
Nanotech
Multiworld
Wormholes
Teleportation
...
..

Apparently I have lost consciousness, but when I was able to look around, the old lady had disappeared.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
