Wise words

"Long experience has taught me this about the status of mankind with regard to matters requiring thought: the less people know and understand about them, the more positively they attempt to argue concerning them, while on the other hand to know and understand a multitude of things renders men cautious in passing judgment upon anything new."
Galileo Galilei

I have noticed lately how people back away from a debate when they are asked to explain the topic or issue they hold an adamant opinion about.
