The Road to Perdition and the Curse of Knowledge.

I’ve started reading Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip Heath and Dan Heath which is a fascinating book for me as an educator, and as a post-mormon. I will write more about it, and how I feel it relates to being a skeptic among credulous believers in one or more future posts.

A couple of days ago my wife playfully brought up my apostasy and skepticism over something, I don’t recall what. It was a situation where instead of feeling sensitive I was able to respond with what I hoped was humor. I said that I’m on the road to hell but since all the roads there are paved with good intentions, the trip would likely be fairly pleasant.
