Friendly Feedback Fertilization

Is faith always, sometimes, or never good. Is doubt always, sometimes, or never good. Does the answer depend upon circumstances? If so, how? Is belief voluntary?

Friendly Feedback Fertilization

Post by wvanfleet »

I cannot believe that closure of the mind to evidence against what one believes can be a good thing for our species, even though it seems to come naturally.

I think that an openness to feedback is what promotes our wisdom, our ability to use our environment as fertilizer for our minds.

I therefore believe that friendly debate is one of our highest functions, even though it is one of our most difficult skills.
