"As the island of knowledge grows, the surface that makes contact with mystery expands. When major theories are overturned, what we thought was certain knowledge gives way, and knowledge touches upon mystery differently. This newly uncovered mystery may be humbling and unsettling, but it is at the cost of truth. Creative scientists, philosophers and poets thrive at this shoreline."

- W. Mark Richardson, "A Skeptic's Sense of Wonder"
