“The most important questions a human can ever ask must surely deserve the most convincing answers, not simply the most comforting?”

    Have you seen, “The Invention of Lying”?

    No Kit, but it is on the docket for sure Ricky Gervais is a funny guy, don’t know how I missed it.

    As for today’s quote I do like good answers and I’m disappointed with people who prefer comfortable answers instead.

    Unfortunately, I think we have to accept that comfort is an outgrowth of the basic needs in human nature – think about Mr. Maslow’s hierarchy. Since the esteem of others comes below the need to accept the reality around us, there will always be a place for those who will provide esteem in exchange for the abandonment of the search for truth, and hence, those who will stop at the religious rung on the ladder in order to receive a boost to their self esteem from the communion of their fellow religionistas.

    Sad, but I think somewhat true.

    Jeff it is a manifestation of the Pareto Principle perhaps?
