To reduce an ancient times master by the ignorances that were common of the time, yet not celebrate their achievements and advancements by creative leaps of the heart and machinery of thought, is cheap. It is knocking beer cans off a fence with your fist when they took the shot from a mile out with some old fashioned gun. So celebrate their wisdom, forgive their ignorance, feel gratitude for the answers which they handed to you on a platter, and strive to take your own shot into that far horizon.
