Musings - Appreciation for Critical Thinking

April 15, 2015 by Fidem Turbāre

I appreciate it when people are inquisitive; it's important to question because that's a vital step toward finding answers, and I feel very strongly that free inquiry should be a level playing field for intellectual interaction with all ideas (and ditto for facts, etc.).

I regard religions as "collections of ideas" that, just like other ideas, deserve no entitlement to exemptions from scrutiny in any form.

Where the critical thinking that encompasses scrutiny and free thought is restricted, progress wanes and stagnation gradually becomes its prominent replacement. Change is an essential in the arena of life experience, and without it quality of life becomes limited with the populace ultimately robbed of mysteries and wonders that might otherwise enrich their lives.
