At the heart of science

At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly
contradictory attitudes:

–  an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive, and

– the most ruthlessly skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new.

This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.

Carl Sagan
