effacing of the populace

What is a human being? What is life? Can science give us reliable answers to such questions? The electricity of life. The meaning of human consciousness. Are we alone? Are the traditional contests between science and religion still relevant? Does the word "spirit" still hold meaning today?

With a sneer, a smile, a certain discrete malice, that which they
have not succeeded in proving by argument - nor indeed can be
understood by themselves nevertheless by these tricks of courteous
disdain they pretend to have proven, endeavoring not only to conceal
their own patently obvious ignorance but to cast it on to the back of
their adversary. For they dispute not in order to find or even to seek
truth, but for victory, and to appear the more learned and strenuous
upholders of a contrary opinion. Such persons should be avoided by all
who have not a good breastplate of patience.
