    Re: is what I think it is reasonable

    In general, the practice of entertaining without necessarily accepting alternate theories is what real scientists try to do in pursuit of useful knowledge.

    Re: is what I think it is reasonable

    It's grammatical but it's clumsy and lacking punctuation.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
