Why Not Give New Ideas a Fair Chance?

I repeat I do not know which is the better way. However, to give sanction to only one way, and to prohibit the other, is to add another divisive factor to Jewish life. And will there be no end to the issues that divide us? Or do the rabbis creating the issurim really crave divisiveness so that there will be no doubt in anyone’s mind as to who are the real guardians of the tradition? I prefer my father’s way to give a new idea that is clearly not prohibited a chance to prove itself before it is rejected.
