Well, first things first; I intend this to be a blog about literature, science, history, politics, philosophy, atheism, food, music, movies, family, fatherhood, life and happiness.
The title of the blog comes from a zen maxim that I crassly stole, because I am not buddhist, but that I found fitting for what I intend to try to do here. Anyway, the full saying is:
Great doubt; great awakening.
Little doubt; little awakening.
No doubt; no awakening.
Too put it mildly, I have my doubts about many, many things that far too many people in this country and on this planet accept without question. I hope, over time, to be able to shed some light on why asking earnest, honest questions about these things is important, discussing why the commonly given answers nearly always fail, and ultimately, do my small part to raise the stature of that greatest tool we have for understanding the universe, doubt.
