Quote of the day

Being a little lazy today, I'll go with a quote. But it's a good one:

In cases where prior knowledge is available, the alternative to "an open mind" is not a "closed mind". It is "an informed mind". In such contexts, any appeal to "keep an open mind" is an appeal to prefer ignorance over knowledge. This is not advisable.
-Ian Rowland-
