Edge.org begins every year by posting a question and a diverse array of responses. This year the big question is: WHAT HAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR MIND ABOUT? WHY?
When thinking changes your mind, that's philosophy.When God changes your mind, that's faith.When facts change your mind, that's science. Science is based on evidence. What happens when the data change? How have scientific findings or arguments changed your mind?"
Lots of fascinating and provocative responses have already been submitted. Willingness to change - not for the sake of change alone, but for solid reasons - is a huge step forward for our species. I'm for it. Happy New Year!
