Whenever a theory appears to you as the only possible one, take this as a sign that you have neither understood the theory nor the problem which it was intended to solve.  Karl Popper (1972)

It is important to realize that science does not make assertions about ultimate questions — about the riddles of existence, or about man’s task in this world.   Karl Popper (1977)
