Being a Skeptic

Being a skeptic means one reserves the right to question and reject any assertion, no matter the source. It also means not becoming so wedded to any belief that one loses the ability to revise or discard it in the face of new evidence or changed conditions.

There are no facts, only interpretations.
Friedrich Nietzsche

William's Whimsical Words:

It is ever so more convenient to simply accept a belief system based on faith, and never question it.
