Can an intellectual still believe absurd things?

@Thomas,
Like I said, if Zeno actually maintained that it was impossible for Achilles to catch up to the tortoise, then of course that would be good cause to disqualify him for such an obviously absurd belief. It may have been a fruitful error under those circumstances, but it would have definitely been an error, and any fruits would have been the result of the intellectual labors of others. Zeno, in contrast, would have remained a dunce.
