First icicles at Bear Lake, Rocky Mountain National Park, CO

It happened more than once that I was involved in a heated (well, overheated) discussion on a subject on which previously I did not inform myself to my satisfaction. Nevertheless, Iíve enjoyed it.

Now, it is a curious fact that we are most certain about judgments that cannot be demonstrated. Subjective certainty is inversely proportional to objective certainty. Russell put the situation rather bluntly, "Who ever heard a theologian preface his creed, or a politician conclude his speech with an estimate of the probable error of his opinion".
