: : : : Is a little knowledge a dangerous thing?

: : : Yes

: : And it is dangerous that the most "deeply ignorant" (using Truman Capote's phrase) among us do not know that they are ignorant.

: Only the truly ignorant and the religious fundamentalist know that they are in possession of all the truth: the most intelligent recognize the enormity of their ignorance and the pitiful total of their knowledge.

So we do, so we do.
