That's not "quite" what it's about, it's about a man who went insane after being blackballed for proposing a medical practice that was not accepted in his time, but it springboards from that to how when a person knows what the facts are and is resolutely disbelieved it can lead to a madness. And a few other things get discussed. Here's a short excerpt:
... I want to emphasize one word of wisdom that I haven't heard much in discussion of allegations by victims of abuse. We often hear Proverbs 18:17, “The one who states his case first seems right, until the other comes and examines him.” But the chapter before teaches us this wisdom.
Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent. Proverbs 17:28Proverbs 18:17 really only applies to someone who is willing to be publicly examined. Those who are not willing to be publicly examined can't claim it for themselves. In that case, silence in the face of accusations should not be assumed to indicate wisdom.
