There is an incredible number of opinions out there, so many that they become white noise. Some people decide to believe things because they were given an idea so early in their lives that they were never questioned. Others choose to believe things because the people who are making those claims are attractive or their views further personal goals.
I choose to only believe things which are quantifiably provable.
I suspect that many things I believe will on further examination prove to be wrong. I’m open to being proved wrong. In fact I relish being proved wrong.
Finding out you are wrong, and correcting your knowledge is the purest pleasure.
I live to learn and I abhor those who do not.
