in thread How do I know what I 'know' is right?

...People had had very good and pretty correct and accurate astronomical data for a long while even during the ancient times but their theories and perceptions about the universe were still "incorrect" (incorrect by today's standard)...

To further humble ourselves: today's "standard" will be incorrect/corrected tomorrow. Check out: Higgs Field and realize that the concept of "ether" may not have been that wrong after all. ;-)
