Three stages of truth

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it
is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." -
Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860)

I would add that the third stage is boring and un-interesting.

OK, this is not exactly Calculus but there is so much silence in
calc-reform... And we can always relate it to the history of sqrt(2)...
Anyone else?
