“The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.”

I cannot help but believe in science, but at the same time I am a strong Christian…and the two are certainly in opposition. Does that mean I have a first-rate intelligence?

Certainly not! At one time I thought I was very intelligent…and then I got married and found out just how much I didn’t know (and still don’t know). Someday I just might win an argument with her…but I won’t hold my breath.

Retired Navy. Inveterate contrarian. If I haven’t done it, I’ve usually done something close.
