A quote about certainty

“More dangerous than ignorance is educated ignorance masquerading as certainty. A brand of ignorance convinced it knows the truth because it has, at length, looked into ONE SIDE of an issue, is a far more dangerous thing than even anti-intellectualism because it appeals to our inner desire for certainty, and so can quickly become viral in nature. Regularly challenge yourself by looking at ideas that run contrary to your own, it’s the only way to combat this disease.” – Jeff Turner, from his Facebook post
