I came across this quote while I was doing some reading this morning . . . provocative and well said:
[We live in a culture that has] for centuries now cultivated the idea that the skeptical person is always smarter than one who believes. You can be almost as stupid as a cabbage, as long as you doubt. . . . Today it is the skeptics who are the social conformists.
– Dallas Willard, Veritas Forum, Ohio State University
(quoted in Kelly Monroe Kullberg, Finding God Beyond Harvard, p. 23).
