> Linguist Thomas Sebeok, building on earlier work by Alvin Weinberg and Arsen Darnay and working as part of the Human Interference Task Force, proposed the creation of an atomic priesthood, a panel of experts comparable to the Catholic church, which has preserved and authorized its message for almost 2,000 years. The priesthood would preserve the knowledge of radioactive waste's locations and dangers through rituals and myths.

Amazing. Seems like a plot point of The Foundation series.

I think the task of propagating such information could suit well the Church of Reality: http://www.churchofreality.org/wisdom/welcome_home/
