A Quote by Isaac Asimov on elderly, emotion, ideas, and scientists

(but, in rebuttal) When, however, the lay public rallies round an idea that is denounced by distinguished but elderly scientists and supports that idea with great fervor and emotion the distinguished but elderly scientists are then, after all, probably right.

Isaac Asimov (1920 - 1992)
