Without wishing to sound like *Mr Angry*, can I suggest that (IMHO), one of
the worst things you can teach a young scientific mind is that scientific
concepts can be learned by analogy or metaphor. The essence of scientific
method and the value of scientific language is that it gets away from all
that mumbo jumbo.
Those who can't accept it described in the terms it actually happens will
not learn it anyway, and those who do want to understand it properly will
just have excess baggage.
