    I’ve questioned all of them. Nonetheless, number 5 is one I’ve found to be very true. We humans make far too many cognitive errors and have too many perceptual limitations for me to believe otherwise.

    Fortunately, we can with a great deal of effort at least significantly reduce our own unreliability over time.

    I have not questioned all of these but due to recent life events, I’ve taken a sledge hammer along with a chisel to the rigid walls of religion I grew up with. Thank you so much for this blog. I ordered your first book and look forward to reading your book along with future blog posts
