  1. Is that quote authentic? Sounds more like a Luther moment.
    If he means over-confidence, and the attendant intellectual complacency, then true. If he means all confidence, then either this statement needs context or he forgot how much his own thought benefited from a rigorous Christian humanist training — so the statement as it stands is both false in itself and inconsistent on his part.
    But there’s an omission too — under-confidence fails to engage and thus banally sanctifies whatever it believes in normal. It should be bracketed with over-confidence in the blinkering category.
    Or was it just TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY today and I’m taking things too seriously?
