I would venture that the contradictions and confusion that we
encounter is indicitive of lack of clarity of theory. I would think
that the academics would have more to gain by maintaining an open
sense of wonder rather than a closed sense of certainty, teaching
and learning would be less dissonant and more "organic" if theories
weren't often at odds. I don't think that it's a matter of having
perfected science, but rather the method. It might seem to be less
of a lie if things were presented, "This is some informational stuff,
but there is more stuff after this." Instead, it's "This is the way it
is, until you hear different, which might be at any time."
Perhaps there is a doppler effect with Truth, it goes by so fast
that it sounds different.
