Magic v Science
Magic comes along before science to help illuminate the path. Then science shits all over it, until it needs it.
If a wizard tells a scientist, “Hey! I have a potion that stops other wizards from stealing your soul and turning it into a love potion!” the scientist is going to call him an idiot, but probably use some really sciency words to do it, just to make the wizard feel as stupid as possible.
But if then a group of black market perfumers get ahold of technology that let’s them get a genetic blue print of pheromones, and they send out sexy agents to clubs to flirt w beautiful people and steal their essence using state of the art pheromone scanning devices and then turn it into perfume, and the government says to the scientist, “We’ll give you $100,000,000 if you can stop these monsters from stealing our scents and turning it into perfume!!!” that scientist might just go back to that wizard and say “So… what was in that potion?”
