I Don't Know

If I had it to do over, I would name this site "I Don't Know." I always notice that folks who seem to know a lot always embrace the mystery of what they don't know.

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed. The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms—this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.” Einstein.

Unfortunately we seem to elect politicians from all corners who are pretty sure that they know everything. Is it my imagination or is there a church on almost every corner around here with pastors who have all the answers.

Knowledge is a beautiful thing. Arrogance is really unattractive. I know that.
