The glorious Part about Science

Suppose that every memory, written word, and piece of technology on earth was destroyed all at once, leaving humanity to start completely from scratch.
Everything we have come to know about science would eventually be discovered again. Given a few thousand years, people would figure out chemistry, and rediscover all of the same elements we know now. People would once again understand biology, and its evolutionary origins. People would eventually see the motions of galaxies in the sky, and work out the details of the universe and the big bang. This is the glorious part about science, it can and would all be replicated. I can assure you, however, that the story about that talking snake would be gone forever.
