A King was passing through a small town, and he saw indications of amazing marksmanship everywhere. Trees and barns and fences, had circles painted on them with a bullet hole in the exact Centre.
He asked to see this unusual marksman. It turned out to be a ten-year old child.
“This is incredible,” said the King in wonder.
“How in the world do you do it?”
“Easy!” was the answer.
“I shoot first and draw the circles later.”

We argue, not to find the truth, but no boast about our knowledge. Eventually it teaches us nothing.
