If your childhood was anything like mine, you were constantly pushed to ask questions:
“Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question!”
“Smart people question everything”
…And other such sayings seemed to fly out of the mouths of teachers, parents and intelligent adults on an almost daily basis.
The adults were right, the greatest minds in history famously questioned everything, even seemingly logical facts that others took for granted (“the world is flat” for example).
