Moving Beyond Ignorance

I ran across a quote today that I felt compelled to share... it so powerfully sums up the issue of promoting credulity above reason.
"Man once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder, is the sport of every wind. With such persons, gullibility, which they call faith, takes the helm from the hand of reason, and the mind becomes a wreck." --Thomas Jefferson to James Smith, 1822.
