"...I seem to have been only a boy playing on the sea-shore, diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
- Isaac Newton

"In terms of our Jesuit Credo, "It is more blessed to ask forgiveness than permission," a falsifiable theory asks permission, a truthifiable theory asks forgiveness - and an unscientific theory has no sense of sin."
