And I agree with it. Many scholars are very rigid in their system of beliefs. They tend not to take new concepts very acceptingly and open mindedly.

But it is skeptism mind you....that forces one to re-evaluate the validity of his/her claims when confronted with a "hole" in his/her argument. And who better than a skeptic to go searching for the "holes"........? We need a good element of skeptism to pressure any individual to back up his/her claims with convincing evidence and decisive proof........else all is "truth" and nothing is refuted. Both open mindedness and skeptism play key roles in the search for truth.

'Tis the open minds that plow through the unexplored.......leaving trails in their wake. And the skeptics ... that follow these trails, debating with the explorers the whole way along whether the path will ever encounter the land of truth, or whether the path made a wrong turn and should be abandonned altogether......
We all need some good "text-book knowledge" skeptics, to interpret the map and carry a compass ... when we head out in search of truth.
