Mark Twain and data science

When I look at data science nowadays it reminds of

In the space of one hundred and seventy-six years the Mississippi has
shortened itself two hundred and forty-two miles.  Therefore … in the Old
Silurian Period the Mississippi River was upward of one million three hundred thousand miles long … seven hundred and forty-two years from now the Mississippi will be only a mile and three-quarters long.  … There is something fascinating about science.  One gets such wholesome returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
                 Mark Twain

I don’t know why…
