|President of the National Academy of Fairy Tales|
Furthermore, since this is revealed truth, no evidence will be presented as none is needed. Revelation is enough and transcends any need for evidence. There will now be no further controversies in science since all remaining issues will be resolved by the President meditating on the matter and he will announce his revelations in due course.
Henceforth, all true scientists will meet in laboratories every Sunday morning and will declare their adherence to the Academy’s edicts on this and any other matter and will be told this week’s revelations. These meeting are to be conducted by heads of departments who will wear robes appropriate to their rank and dignity. The audience will listen quietly and respectfully. No discussion or disagreement is to be permitted.
Any disagreement will result in expulsion from the Academy and heretics will be forbidden from practicing science or associating with any scientists.
Furthermore, the President is now to press for an urgent meeting with senior politicians, legislators and judges to demand that he now be consulted on all matters of public policy which must receive his personal approval before becoming law. All areas of government, including the military, policing, welfare and education are to be subject to oversight by the Academy.
What a truly bizarre world that would be.
In reality, of course, such a person would be swiftly removed from his post and, in a civilized society, would receive the psychiatric support and medication needed.
Why then does religion operate in just this way?
