Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.
Those who can’t change their minds can’t change anything.
To me, anything that is a church is really just far too close minded.
It does take great maturity to understand that the opinion we are arguing for is merely the hypothesis we favor, necessarily imperfect, probably transitory, which only very limited minds can declare to be a certainty or a truth.
Closing your mind to religion is no different than the close-mindedness that religions can cause.
What most people call "chaos" is actually incredibly predictable and maddeningly boring - greed, close-mindedness, warring over power.
