Aristotle

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.


Even better is to work out a good method of testing it.

Oh, you're right about that. The world is full of self-important self-righteous assholes, eternally tormented by a conviction that Somebody, Somewhere is Doing Something they don't approve of, and driven by a compulsion to Do Something About It at any cost. When enough of them get together we get saddled with idiocies like Prohibition, blacklists, Blue Laws and so on.

In essence, a judge has told the Christian florist she is entitled to her beliefs - but not to act on them!


Does this include secular fundamentalists?

A young person’s mind, once stretched by a new idea, never shrinks back to its original dimension.


Worth thinking over.

Beauty is truth. Truth beauty. If you are ugly, it is a lie.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

Really? I thought it was the cake that was a lie...

It is easier to swallow an unpalatable truth when it is covered in the chocolate of lies.
Sometimes, only a series of well-crafted lies can guide a person to discover the truth for themselves.
You are entitled to your opinion as I am entitled to my opinion. If my opinion is that your opinion is rubbish, I am entitled to that opinion despite your protests. The reverse is also true.
The harshest lesson to learn is that the universe does not rely on us for direction.

Something I saw in the Honorverse "New Ships Designs" thread prompts me to say:

Only an idiot would design a warship for peacetime.

Hatred is the friction in thinking.

Ignorance is the cause. Bliss is the effect.

What is the measure of a man -- the weight of his convictions or the light of his actions?

Dumb people should just sue the school system instead of shooting it up.
