A really, really, good scientist is often marked by the fact that he is readily puzzled, skeptical though he always is. Perhaps a really, really, really, really good scientist is, by extension, painfully aware of how puzzling the universe generally is. Not that he flees toward the shores of simplistic explanations and ego-assuaging personified Gods. Oh, no. The mystery is SO much larger than that.
