"Science is much more than a body of knowledge.  It is a way of thinking.  This is central to its success.  Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don't conform to our preconceptions.  It counsels us to carry alternative hypotheses in our heads and see which best match the facts.  It urges on us a fine balance between no-holds-barred openness to new ideas, however heretical, and the most rigorous, skeptical scrutinizing of everything -- new ideas and established wisdom.  We need wide appreciation of this kind of thinking.  It works."-Carl Sagan
