Quote of the day from Freeman Dyson

I might have posted this before – but it stands true –

Progress in science is often built on wrong theories that are later corrected. It is better to be wrong than to be vague.

The logic being that if wrong you’ve at least eliminated one possibility in the process of figuring things out – if you’re vague you haven’t.
