In defense of intellectual agnosticism …

We are reposting this cool meme in defense of intellectual agnosticism (i.e. the ability to update one’s priors). You can check out the entire series of “epistemic rationality memes” here. (double hat tip: Tyler Cowen & Michael Wiebe)

    I love this meme. It baffles me how people have the ‘you must be totally for or totally against’ mentality, when they truly wont become closer to the truth until they admit they do not KNOW (for sure) much at all. I love the SOCRATic mentality of acknowledging everything that you think you know, could be untrue, thus always leaving the room for potential growth and progress.
