Belatedly, a quotation to hang at the top of the post:

There is a great difference between still believing something and believing it again. Still to believe that the moon affects the plants reveals stupidity and superstition, but to believe it again is a sign of philosophy and reflection.

Lichtenberg, Georg Christoph, 1775
