A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public 
lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and 
how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars 
called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back 
of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is 
really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." The scientist 
gave a superior smile before replying, "What is the tortoise standing on?" 
"You're very clever, young man, very clever," said the old lady.
"But it's turtles all the way down!"
