Thoughtful Thursday: A Skeptical Vacation

James, our resident skeptic, is taking a couple weeks off to focus on curriculum writing. That is not exactly a vacation, but it is a time away. So I offer you a thought or two via a timely quote from Walt Whitman:

“I like the scientific spirit—the holding off, the being sure but not too sure, the willingness to surrender ideas when the evidence is against them: this is ultimately fine—it always keeps the way beyond open—always gives life, thought, affection, the whole man, a chance to try over again after a mistake—after a wrong guess.”  -Walt Whitman
