Quote of the Day

Several months later, having learned many valuable lessons about just how much work babies are, it's time to resurrect this blog. So we'll start off small, with a quote of the day, and proceed to more studious dillentatism in the coming days. So, without further ado, a quote of the day on the Galileo complex so often seen in the fringe theories that permeate online:

But a man does not attain the status of Galileo merely because he is persecuted; he must also be right.


Stephen Jay Gould, Ever Since Darwin: Reflections in Natural History, New York: W. W. Norton & Company, 1977, p 154.
