"Science makes godlike -- it is all over with priests and gods when man becomes
scientific. Moral: science is the forbidden as such -- it alone is
forbidden. Science is the *first* sin, the *original* sin. *This alone is
morality.* ``Thou shalt not know -- the rest follows."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche

At the heart of science is an essential tension between two seemingly
contradictory attitudes -- an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre
or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny
of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep
nonsense. Of course, scientists make mistakes in trying to understand the
world, but there is a built-in error-correcting mechanism: The collective
enterprise of creative thinking and skeptical thinking together keeps the
field on track.
-- Carl Sagan, "The Fine Art of Baloney Detection," Parade, February 1, 1987

which is often not as forthcoming as at first.

proof by semantic shift:
Some of the standard but inconvenient definitions are changed
for the statement of the result.

proof by appeal to intuition:
Cloud-shaped drawings frequently help here.
