Our Religious Tract

Front side:

Life's Big Questions: Why am I here? What happens when I die? Why is there a universe? What does it all mean?

Back side:

We don't know! These are tough questions that deserve respect. Answering them probably requires a lot of time and effort. Maybe it's best to start humble while trying to tackle the tricky issues.

The Grapes of Fallibilism

BEN: “I’m promoting a culture of skepticism. That’s what I’m doing. Hey, just take a look at what you believe and what you think about stuff, and stab it in the throat. And if it lives, we’re good.”

AARON: “Stabbing it in the throat… you had me until then.”

BEN: “I’m kind of an all-or-nothing guy.”

AARON: “Yeah! ‘Go big or go home. No fear.’  I think you can always be wrong. Always. You never ever know. Like I act like I know all the time, but if you have a good solid point, I will listen to you and I might change my mind because of it. I think more people need to do that. More people need to realize that, even though you may be totally committed to this idea or ideology, and you might have so much invested in it, you can always be wrong. You don’t know 100% anything…”

-Ben Parsons and Aaron Mason, episode 66 of The Grapes of Rad
