...The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." ~ Psalm 14:1
Rules of Inquiry
Written by Webmaster   

 Openly look at difficult topics and issues.  You may not be able to come away with a conclusion after a short time or even a moderate amount of devoted time, but the “case” will have been opened, and a “place” in your thinking to accumulate information about such things will have been started.  Besides, do you really have to definitely conclude something about everything TODAY?

Do not allow obsessions with controversy and controversial ideas to distract you.  Upon investigating a concept, if you immediately take a turn to follow an obsession, you will most likely miss all the other evidence that will help define the larger picture, which will include your obsession.  (And you may find out something about your obsession that you need to know!)

Allow others to freely inquire and investigate for themselves.  Do not bind your opinions on others, as you don’t want others binding their opinions on you.

Give others the benefit of the doubt, and do not quickly attribute evil motives to others who express ideas different from your own.

Do not insult or offend, so that others can give you the benefit of the doubt.
