That Silly "Science" Thing

I overheard a girl say "I don't believe in science. I only believe in things I can see."

I.. but.. WHAT?!

From wikipedia:

Science (from the Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge" or "to know") is the effort to discover, and increase human understanding of how the physical world works. Through controlled methods, scientists use observable physical evidence of natural phenomena to collect data, and analyze this information to explain what and how things work. Such methods include experimentation that tries to simulate natural phenomena under controlled conditions and thought experiments. Knowledge in science is gained through research.

"Seeing" is a form of observation. Knowledge is.. knowledge.

It completely breaks my head that she would need to come up with such a stupid way of saying "I'm stupid." Sometimes I wonder about people.
