This discussion reminds me of two wonderful quotes:
âWhen a thing is new, people say: âIt is not true.â
Later, when its truth becomes obvious, they say: âIt is not important.â
Finally, when its importance cannot be denied, they say:
'Anyway, it is not new.ââ
--William James (1842-1910)
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed;
Second, it is violently opposed; and
Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
