Seth has some interesting comments on curiosity, and makes a comment on Fundamentalism as a way of thinking that doesn’t consider truth unless it fits into a narrow, predefined framework. I’m not sure that I agree with that assertion, although I understand where he’s coming from with it.
But this is interesting to me, because believing in an All Powerful, All Knowing God, I don’t have that fear. All truth, real truth, is God’s truth. So a careful study of a thing can only confirm and enrich what I already believe. 🙂
Now I am so glad that my mom tolerated the little boy who was constantly dragging home radios, vacuum cleaners, and televisions in order to perform circuit board lobotomies. Just to see what made them tick. She allowed me to feed my curiosity, to let it breath.
Thanks Ma, for the freedom to exercise curiosity.
