NEMEROV 2014 #6


         I do not know and therefore can’t believe
         What others in their ignorance conceive
         As true by virtue of Authority,
         Or simply wishing what they hope must be.

         Such superstition cannot stand the test
         Of Truth, however loudly it’s professed,
         No matter the alleged Authorities
         In whom no True Believer disbelieves.

         And yet what is the harm if I suppose
         As true what I know no one truly knows
         And simply call it my hypothesis,
         Open to testing and analysis?

              Why not give something promising a try
              And see what truth emerges, by and by?
