"There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments
and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance - that principle is contempt prior
to investigation. " -Herbert Spencer

(the above quote is most often attributed to 19th century philosopher Herbert Spencer- the source of this quote is still debated but good evidence exists that it is better sourced as a quote from A View of the Evidence of Christianity - 1794 - William Paley In any case I still find this quotation an appropriate focus of this class)
