Man is willing to die for any idea, provided he does not understand it.
You don't understand my philosophy!
But that is the way progress is made: each generation misunderstands the previous one.
A hen is only an egg's way of making another egg.

but if he will be content to begin with doubts, he shall end in certainties.
Sir Francis Bacon
