I saw a rainbow while walking the dogs this morning. Rainbows are amazing. But for once that’s not my point.
We’ve only had a full physical model for how rainbows work for a bit over 300 years. Yet the name of the thing makes it clear that we always knew it had something to do with water drops in the sky.
Is there a name for this modern conceit that we as a society were all ignorant unthinking hicks prior to the Enlightenment [sic]?
