What distinguishes an outrageous idea from a reasonable one? And how are these different from a true or a false idea? I suspect that many people confuse reasonable/outrageous with true/false, which can make it difficult to understand sometimes counterintuitive scientific findings.

Naïve Realism, or the Strange Case of Physics and Fake Philosophers (Part 2)

Deepak Chopra | Posted 10.18.2014 | Healthy Living
Deepak Chopra

Scientists have assigned the role of Mister Answer to science, the source of knowledge on every subject.

Greater comfort, I think, is to be found in the realization that infinity is as problematic for science as it is for religion.
