I think one of the most important things we can come to realize in life, is that just because you have believed something to be true for a lifetime, does not make it TRUE. The quest for truth requires us to challenge beliefs that may have been passed down from our family, preached to us by teachers in our youth, or things we have read. Our world is full of mis-information, and it is our job to be skeptical, ask questions, use common sense and look at the evidence. So many of the beliefs I wanted to believe were true, when put to the test of say science, or even a just bit more research were in fact exposed as fiction. Evolution continues!
