In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results.”
Michael Crichton Quote: “Writing a book is a bit like going on location for a movie. You’re absent from your life, your family, and your friends. You’re psychologically gone, so you might as well be physically gone.”

The characteristic human trait is not awareness but conformity, and the characteristic result is religious warfare.”
Michael Crichton Quote: “In other centuries, human beings wanted to be saved, or improved, or freed, or educated. But in our century, they want to be entertained.
