Since we are mortal beings with a finite lifespan, we must also prioritize our efforts in the search for truth and focus on the things that matter most to us. For me, finding the Higgs Boson or solving Universal Theory is of less importance than my family, so truths regarding my family take priority in my life.
"The important thing to remember about scientists and science is that scientists seek the truth, but understand they will never reach it."
I haven't met too many of that type of scientist. Any, really. If you can't find truth, why seek it in the first place? That's a pretty self-defeating attitude, wouldn't you agree?
I much prefer the attitude that there are truths that everyone needs to know and truths that may not be important for us to know right now. Wisdom is in prioritization.
