Martin Gardner


Debunking bad science should be constant obligation of the science community, even if it takes time away from serious research or seems to be a losing battle.

The human mind, or even the mind of a cat, is more interesting in its complexity than an entire galaxy if it is devoid of life.

Modern science should indeed arouse in all of us a humility before the immensity of the unexplored and a tolerance for crazy hypotheses.

Even a great mathematician is almost always unknown to the public. His "adventures" are usually so confined to the interior of his skull that only another mathematician cares to read about them.
