Delta1212 Posted December 20, 2012 Share Posted December 20, 2012 I'm absolutely certain that I exist, I think therefore I am. You can't build castles in the sky if you don't have your boots firmly on rock. But despite a lot of common conceptions, the goal of science isn't to build castles in the sky. It's to figure out where the heck the rock is. Taking that into consideration, planting your feet firmly anywhere is likely to impede your progress because you won't be able to look anywhere else, and since you planted your feet without knowing where the rock is, it's just as likely that you planted them on quicksand. So yes, people who want to build castles in the sky need to plant their feet first, but those people become politicians, not scientists. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
