Certainty vs Wisdom
Nothing strikes fear in my heart more than a well publicized pillar of certainty. My town newspaper has never been as informative as newspaper could be, but now they are publishing the brain draining writings of Dr. Laura with her loud assurance that there is only one point of view and if you don't share it then there is something wrong with you. Certainty must be wonderful. You never have to think.
Of course, not every doubting person is terribly thoughtful, but I'm quite sure that most thoughtful people are at least cognizant of other points of view and how they might be legitimately arrived at. Dr. Laura manages to show disdain for any opinion other than hers and then convince those that share hers that she has given the matter her serious deep thoughtful attention and there is no reason for them to even wonder how someone could come to any other conclusion. I like that approach. It is the same approach a good preacher uses to keep his congregation coming back and making their contributions. Sometimes, I wish I could do that, but I'm always aware that I could be wrong.
Asimov's book "The Demon Haunted World" agrees with me, (so of course I bought a copy) saying that scientific progress depends on being aware of fallibility. I am absolutely certain that certainty is "usually" the enemy of wisdom. Probably including this time.
