Then either we're right and we can quit striving to learn more, or we're 
wrong about all of it.  Science is VERY often partially right, simply 
illuminating a subject just a little more, and creating more questions than 
it provides answers.  And as we get on the pendulum swing of each and every 
new "right" finding, we tend to lose sight of whole.  Science really is a 
continuing process of learning small bits and pieces, and trying to 
incorporate those bits and pieces into the understanding of the whole.  Once 
in a great while there is a great illuminating breakthrough, such as 
understanding that the world is round and not flat, but for the most part, 
progress is made in small bits, and how those bits fit into the whole is not 
always crystal clear in the beginning.
