"Widespread belief..."

 

"The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed, in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible."

          ~ Bertrand Russell, from his book Marriage and Morals
