certainty frightens me

Most of the greatest evils that man has afflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, was false. Few things are more dangerous than people who think they’re in possession of absolute truth. Honest inquiry with sincere questions and an open mind rarely contribute to the misery of the world.
-Bertrand Russell
