"I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that we agree on at least three things: the world is round, two plus two is four, and cannibalism is bad. (Please do not send me any eMail disputing these statements.) Now suppose that you and I are cheerfully hiking through the jungle when we unexpectedly step into a clearing. We find ourselves surrounded by natives carrying spears and shields, who insist that the world is flat, that two plus two is five, and that cannibalism is an honored tradition. Do you think it wise, under the circumstances, that we jump onto a tree stump to announce that their geography, math, and dietary habits are flawed and incorrect?" (04/12/11)
