This I Believe

I believe that doubt is the most important attribute of intellectual maturity and the greatest prospect for tolerance and mutual respect and survival.

I fear people who are certain about things not seen, regardless of the substance of their particular certainties.

I embrace (though it is sometimes an uncomfortable embrace) the reality of uncertainty; and hope that I will follow that uncertainty in my ethics of how to treat others and how to view myself.
