Thought for the Day

If it weren't for the early philosophers, we wouldn't have the studies of logic, mathematics, psychology, psychoanalysis, and the list of specializations goes on.

If it weren't for the alchemists, we wouldn't have modern-day chemistry, physics, or medicine.

If it weren't for religious dogma, most wars, crusades, excommunication, and the burning of heretics and "witches" would never have happened.

The human search for meaning, our place in the universe, indeed our understanding of the Universe, has brought out the best in us--and the worst in us.
