The Nature of Honest Inquiry

"If I'm wrong about this, tell me": Ken Layne, in this log entry.

It's not the particulars of Mormons in Timbuktu he's talking about that interests me; it's that he'd include the quoted statement. To me, that's face-value evidence of a prevailing interest in getting to the truth, even if such a process is messy. It's 180-degrees away from "I know the truth, and now you do, too" framings.
