Long Proved Absurd

“Men have never readily accepted new ideas.  Our schools and general thinking are cluttered with beliefs long proved absurd by contemporary knowledge.  Man has demonstrated over and over again that the last thing he wants are new ideas, even when they are desperately needed.  Ideas are welcomed as long as they do not contradict theories on which scholarly reputations have been erected.”  ~Louis L’Amour, The Haunted Mesa ©1987
