I believe in being free, acquiring knowledge, and telling the truth.
-- Henry Louis Mencken

 

All truth passes through 3 stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
-- Arthur Schopenhauer

 


 

 

HonestThinking is dedicated and committed to the art of thinking honestly. Yet honest thinking is not the same as true thinking, for it is possible to think honestly, but be mistaken. For the same reason, honest thinking is not identical with objective thinking either. Honest thinking means striving to get things right. This involves being truthful about whatever one publishes, but just as importantly, it involves an uncompromising dedication never to suppress relevant data, even when data collides with dearly held prejudices. Such an approach may sometimes require hurtful revisions in one’s belief system. That’s what HonestThinking is all about! Read the entire manifesto.
