Exactly.

The most succinct encapsulation I've seen of your oh so eloquant dissertation above, is something I read in someone tag line somewhere. From memory it went something like:

In theory, theory is enough. In practice, it isn't!

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The quote I heard was:
    In theory, theory is the same as practice. In practice, it's not.
    --
    Ytrew

      attributed to Yogi Berra.

      merlyn likes to give an alternative phrasing:

      The difference between theory and practice in theory is much less
      than the difference between theory and practice in practice.
       — e.g. in this clpm post
      We're building the house of the future together.
