I found a quote that I think is perfectly apropos of this blog in general:
I have approximate answers and possible beliefs in different degrees of certainty about different things, but I’m not absolutely sure of anything, and of many things I don’t know anything about, but I don’t have to know an answer I don’t feel frightened by not knowing things, by being lost in the mysterious universe without having any purpose which is the way it really is as far as I can tell possibly. It doesn’t frighten me. – Richard Feynman
In fact, I think an excerpt of that quote will become my new sub-title for this blog.
“You know, Dick, when life gives you lemons, just shut up and eat the damn lemons.” – Harry Solomon (3rd Rock From The Sun)
This comes from the alternate text (title?) of the Valentine’s Day XKCD comic:
You don’t use science to show that you’re right, you use science to become right.
I’ve been working massive amounts of overtime this week, so I haven’t had a lot of time to post. I’m taking the easy way out and posting a quote without a whole lot of commentary. So…um…here goes:
A fact is a simple statement that everyone believes. It is innocent, unless found guilty. A hypothesis is a novel suggestion that no one wants to believe. It is guilty, until found effective. – Edward Teller
We are entitled to our own opinions; we are not entitled to our own facts – Al Franken
