The Lure of the Improbable

The stock in trade of screenwriters is the improbable and the fantastic co-incidence. Screenwriters have inadvertently convinced the public that whatever scientists say is inevitable, e.g. global warming they are convinced can never happen. Conversely, whatever the scientists say is highly unlikely, e.g. a god meddling in human affairs, they are absolutely certain happens every day with complete reliability.
