"If devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality, then there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking. The alleged shortcut to knowledge, which is faith, is only a short-circuit destroying the mind."
Ayn Rand

I have a couple of those Edge books, and they really do contain much food for thought. Thanks for the post, it'll take me a long time to read everything there, especially since I spend so much time posting here during my brief forays online.
