Which is why I suspect that it is not uncommon that I find myself aligned on
issues with the religionists.  We come to humility from different
directions, perhaps. But it's where we end up together.

Growing up, I was always resentful that it seemed to be the blustering
braggart who got the girl.  Confidence! 

Confidence is easy, if you ignore enough of what's around you.

I have no confidence in anything I am saying. Or in PyGeo, for that matter.

Too smart for that.
