It's intrisic to the human condition to ask "why?"

I'm going to Carrefour to buy some mayonnaise and beetroot.

Perhaps this is what religion and science look like together:

Roadkill.

Having said that, religion was good enough for Darwin and Einstein. Those boys weren't teaching English, you know.

EDIT: Having pondered it some more over a Duvel I've reached the conclusion that beetroot is religion and mayonnaise science.

Good grief. Mr Presley is toying with forces he does not understand. Mark my words, these are things man was not meant to eat in the same sandwich.

Religion, Politics, Science and Feminine hygiene sprays - these things are all best described as...Sausage.
You just really don't want to know what goes into them as they are being made.

With the exception of science that might be true. As for science, I'm particularly interested in what goes into it.
