The method itself is a self-correcting system that fixes mistakes and culls wrong ideas from its pages, but still uses them as a means of learning about our mistakes. The beauty of science may be its ability to remain humble and admit its own mistakes while trying to correct them.

That to me is its elegance and even grace. "Here's our educated best guess. We know it's incomplete, inconsistent, and in some places just plain wrong. We'll fix the problems as we find them. I mean, this ain't some fucking religion."

I am us and we is me. ... bitches.
