Skeptical Quote of the Week.
‘Keep your identity separate from your opinions. (Your opinions) are objects in a box you carry with you, and should be easily replaceable if it turns out they’re no good. If you think that the opinions in the box are who you are, then you’ll cling to them despite any evidence to the contrary. Bottom line, if you want to always be right, you need to always be prepared to change your mind.’ - CGP Grey
