    Es gibt ein Prinzip, das ein Hindernis gegen alle Informationen ist, das gegen alle Argumente beweist und das einen Mann in ewiger Unwissenheit halten kann - dieses Prinzip ist Verachtung vor der Untersuchung.

    létezik egy elv, amely minden információ ellen akadályt alkot, amely minden érv ellen bizonyítékként szolgál, és amely nem hagyhatja el az embert az örök tudatlanságban - ez az elv a vizsgálatot megelőző megvetés.

    すべての情報に対する障壁であり、すべての議論に対する証拠であり、人間を永遠の無知に保つことに失敗することのない原則があります-その原則は調査前に軽emptされています。

    ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಮಾಹಿತಿಯ ವಿರುದ್ಧದ ಒಂದು ತತ್ವವಿದೆ, ಅದು ಎಲ್ಲಾ ವಾದಗಳಿಗೆ ವಿರುದ್ಧವಾದ ಪುರಾವೆಯಾಗಿದೆ ಮತ್ತು ಮನುಷ್ಯನನ್ನು ಶಾಶ್ವತ ಅಜ್ಞಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಇರಿಸಲು ಅದು ವಿಫಲವಾಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ - ಆ ತತ್ವವು ತನಿಖೆಯ ಮೊದಲು ತಿರಸ್ಕಾರವಾಗಿದೆ.

    existe um princípio que é uma barreira contra todas as informações, que é a prova contra todos os argumentos, e que não pode deixar de manter um homem na ignorância eterna - esse princípio é o desprezo antes da investigação.

    有一条原则是禁止所有信息,是对所有论据的证明,并且不能使一个人永远处于愚昧无知的状态-该原则在调查之前是轻视的。
