Quote of the day..

Ever since the beginning of modern science, 

the best minds have recognized that 

"the range of acknowledged ignorance will 

grow with the advance of science." 

Unfortunately, the popular effect of 

this scientific advance has been a belief, 

seemingly shared by many scientists,that

the range of our ignorance is steadily diminishing and

that we can therefore aim at more comprehensive and 

deliberate control of all human activities. 

It is for this reason that those intoxicated by 

the advance of knowledge so often become 

the enemies of freedom."

-- Friedrich August von Hayek
(1899-1992), Nobel Laureate of Economic Sciences 1974

"A heretic is a man who sees with his own eyes."

-- Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
(1729-1781) German Dramatist
