Observations, thoughts, reminiscences, and occasional rants on
anthropology, linguistics, old-time banjo, and anything else that crosses my path...
As an educator, I find a lesson in all this: We must not look for confirmation; we must discover and ask new questions. Religion, as Nye notes, cannot predict and doesn't give us room to grow. It forces people to give up in fact. Science gives us a future. I don't dislike people believing in God, but I am not okay with people giving up the pursuit of knowledge.
Nicely put, Kate.
