I'm still trying to work out why ASM thinks I'm a Chelsea fan  :)

More seriously and picking upon that analology.  As a microscopist, during the first 20 years of working part of my job was to challenge conventional wisdom, and it came fairly naturally to me.  I learned that it doesn't make you very popular, I can live with that.  It did earn me the nickname Cassandra from one of my colleagues.

On a more technical side microscopy taught me that using different filters to examine something generally gave a more complete understanding. 

To me there seem to be plenty of folk on here see football though amber filters, and that's fine too.  But there is, as I see it not many folk using a blue filter with some who did giving up commenting, perhaps because of the treatment they have been given, or perhaps there are other reasons.

This filter analogy was brought to mind again yesterday when my BLFG persuaded me to attend a talk on beginning astronomy at a "friendship group" in a small local Church with which Alloway is about to be united.  In talking about looking at the stars and the sun the host explained that using different filters in front of the objective lens would show different features.

 So not just in the microscopical world but also in the astronomical world and I would say in the metaphysical world it is better to take in views through different filters to get a better grasp of what is going on.
