Fear is not blindfolded those that act in its name no exactly what they are doing. They are too busy being right to expand their context. Real questions arise from uncertainty and Uncertainty is the consort of the Unknown.

A number of cultures promote reason as a fundamental caracteristic of God. Reason is thought to be a basic capacity of the gods. Jefferson said that (axiomatically), if one strives to reach godliness then that one must develop the power of reason. According to Jefferson, one must, above all things,get understanding.
