THOUGHT for Tuesday

Ah, brilliant humanity!
Look how far we've come!

2000 B.C. - Here, eat this root.

1000 A.D. - That root is heathen.
Here, say this prayer.

1850 A.D. - That prayer is superstition.
Here, drink this potion.

1940 A.D. - That potion is snake oil.
Here, swallow this pill.

1985 A.D. - That pill is ineffective.
Here, take this antibiotic.

2000 A.D. - That antibiotic is artificial.
Here, eat this root.
