Take pride in knowing you aren't easy to manipulate and have the rare ability of critical thought.

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

I used to be atheist but eventually I learned that closing my mind to other ideas (especially when so many people believe different things) did not help me learn. Now I'm agnostic and find it fun to learn about others beliefs and why they believe. I don't try anymore to counter their beliefs with "the fossil records" and "carbon dating." If they ask, I can tell them. It's easier for me not to have strict beliefs on the origin of time and the origin of life since there is still much more to discover. Why limit your thoughts when you don't know everything?

I get a daily reminder just by talking to humans. How the fuck we made it this far is crazy.
