Welcome, E.W.

It's ultimately up to you how you use the site, but this approach is one that is appreciated.

Personally, I believe that my understanding is defined more by the information and experience available to me than by any conscious effort on my part. I like to think of myself as an open-minded person, and perhaps compared to most people, I am. However, even my definition of open-mindedness has parameters that are a result of my environment and history.

Reflecting a lot on these matters, the best that I have been able to settle upon is a path of trying to do good, and trying not to do harm. Whatever our beliefs, we share the same human condition, and there are definitely truths that we share that are rooted in that.
