Anything that can save your life can kill you.
Technology is not science. You can do something without knowing how it works. You can know how something works without being able to do it.
Critical thinking is necessary.
Names are not definative.
It's not what you know; it's what you know that ain't so that will kill you. to quote my Dad.
Conservative does not mean they wish to conserve anything. They may want to go back to a time that never existed.
"Christian" may not mean follower of Jesus. They can be a messianic Jewish sect as true to their nominal leader as the Branch Dividians were to theirs.
Critical reading is necessary. Read the contract as your worst enemy out to get you; you may be unpleasently suprised by your vulnerability.
