“Those who have taken upon them to lay down the law of nature as a thing already searched out and understood, whether they have spoken in simple assurance or professional affectation, have therein done philosophy and the sciences great injury. For as they have been successful in inducing belief, so they have been effective in quenching and stopping inquiry; and have done more harm by spoiling and putting an end to other men’s efforts than good by their own.”    -Francis Bacon
“Scientists must be willing to abandon supposed knowledge when a completely different explanation arises – ‘Hey, this is an orangutan jawbone stained dark, so Piltdown Man really isn’t our grandfather.’ Far more often, scientists are asked to modify their knowledge: Remember when you said that A doesn’t cause B every single time? It turns out that A causes B only when C is happening. This increases the subtlety and nuance of science. As a surprising example, it turns out that the most iconic ‘fact’ in the life sciences is only a temporary foothold: DNA doesn’t always form a double helix, and those exceptions are mighty interesting.” -Robert Sapolsky
