Religion is dead - long live the new religion
Ideas are like trees. Some have to die to give the saplings the chance to get big and blossom. Asking a multitude of high level scientists to act like foresters and define the trees that should be cut down is simply a brilliant idea and I am looking forward to the 2016 edition.
Funny to notice the zeal with which certain trees are defended that are deemed cutworthy by others. I am not going to highlight the arguments in the decision process, but just would like to advice to read the book and behold the enlightment by the great minds when the forest roof opens when a tree is cut down. Only one small proposal: slightly less Anglosaxon science focus would brighten the enlightment further.
