Clarrise Ng

Faith in itself, like a life buoy, sometimes a life buoy, is not automatic. It is never certain in the questions it tries to answer in the first place, and those who attempt to answer it often have to look beyond automatic survival and intuition to discover possible answers.

Eric Sheninger

The point here is that it is not a technology issue, but many people make it one. The behavior argument that many make is flawed.
