Science is a lie -- it HAS to be a lie. If not, then an entire life structure and value system falls.
It's interesting that they cling to their belief because they need it to shore up their other beliefs, not because it's The Truth. It's like insisting that the Big Bad Wolf MUST be real because if he wasn't, then Little Red Riding Hood wouldn't be real either.

In science, assumptions are based on conclusions. We "assume" that an icy road will be slippery because we have tested it.
