Oh! Also this weekend I’ll be at UCLA MCing at the Etc. Stage of the LA Times Festival of Books! If you’re in the area come check it out!
Now here’s the quotes:
If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way.
– Bertrand Russell
– Robert Heinlein
