If reason were like hauling…

‘The testimony of many has little more value than that of few, since the number of people who reason well in complicated matters is much smaller than that of those who reason badly. If reasoning were like hauling I should agree that several reasoners would be worth more than one, just as several horses can haul more sacks of grain than one can. But reasoning is like racing and not like hauling, and a single Barbary steed can outrun a hundred dray horses…’
Galileo on why consensus is irrelevant to whether or not he was right.

    S. I canceled the comment for you, as well as the requests that I cancel. Sorry I didn’t see them sooner, but I believe I am the only one who did see them, as I have to publish for comments to be seen.=)
