About Me"To admit ignorance is to relinquish control. But ignorance is part of the human condition. I came hardwired with very little knowledge. To pretend I'm done learning, to act as though I have filled out the empty spaces in my understanding is to cement ignorance into stupidity. It is to avoid vulnerability at the expense of growth." ~ Kent Hayden ("The Case for Christian Agnosticism")
