I Think -vs- I Know

Happy Thursday!  I’m going to be writing more about this in tomorrow’s post, but I’ll be referencing an essay I just re-read, and I figured I’d share it here today.

I have a hunch this won’t be super popular, and there’s so much grey area, I’m having a hard time articulating what I think.  But that’s part of the point of blogs (and writing, in general), in my opinion.  To debate my own ideas and the ideas of anyone else who wants to contribute.

So, I think we’ve all gone a little crazy.  And we’ve forgotten there’s a difference between an opinion and a fact.  On so many issues, everyone thinks something (and I think that’s good), but nobody knows anything.

But we all talk like we know everything.  And, because we think we know everything, if someone thinks something different about this thing we “know” we think they’re arguing facts, because we forgot it was just our opinion all along.

Do I think there are facts?  Of course.  But I think we’re too quick to put the “I thinks” into the “I knows.”

Anyway, here’s the article I read.  Give it a look, and I’ll be back at this a little more tomorrow!

Feel free to let me know what you think (not what you know) in the comments!
