And I quote the RonJeffries as follows:
The fact that we know more today, and are more capable today, is good news about today, not bad news about yesterday.

I'd forgotten his quote today and asked him to send it to me. But of course I had to name what I was asking for, so here was my spur of the moment translation in my query to him:
Just because we learned something new today doesn't mean we were frickin’ idiots yesterday.

Ron said he thought I should keep my version.

Why do so many of us (myself included) believe that we are more capable than we actually are? It's been ’proven’ by modern study. More on this when I shouldn't be doing something else.
