Some scientists are questioning whether the research should ever have been undertaken in a university laboratory, instead of at a military facility.It really worries me that "some scientists" appear to put their trust in "military facilities" rather than universities, which are. at least in theory, dedicated to more independent research.
It reminded me of the Cold War parody of a Western hymn:
The day God gave thee, man, is ending
The darkness falls at thy behest
who spent thy little life defending
from conquest by the East, the West.
The sun that bids us live is waking
behind the cloud that bids us die
And in the murk fresh minds are making
new plans to blow us all sky-high.
It worries me that "some scientists" seem to have a preference for operating in that murk.
But never mind:
Bombs shall dig our sepulchreOr, as Jeremy Taylor used to sing:
Bigger bombs exhume us.
Juvenes dum sumus.
But since they tell us that "science" has won the battle of "science versus religion" we ought to forget all our outdated superstitions about human sinfulness, and rather put our trust in "some scientists" and their "military facilities".
Three cheers for the army, and all the boys in blue
Three cheers for the scientists, and politicians too
Three cheers for the future years, when we shall surely reap
All the joys of living on a nuclear rubbish heap.
