For Christian Teens: Getting Beyond the Unthinkable

I’m thinking of some tri-fold fliers to be handed out to Christian teens. Here's a first approximation of one of them. Tell me what you think of it, what you'd add, take away, change._______________________________ What If ... ? When you think about it, it’s the nuances that have helped we humans advance. The search for all that stuff obscured by the standard wisdom, the common knowledge, the things every sane person knows. … [Read more...]

Argh.

Something I've been saying for years in private, and will now say again in public, is that I think humans, mostly, are not really very bright. I think we have what I call "fractional intelligence."
