Chapter Seven: Humility is truth, not lowliness
Humans have evolved into very complex thinking animals; it would be the greatest insult to nature to become less the thinker and more the believer in outdated "truths." Truly humble human beings, realizing they do not know all, work diligently to develop scientific knowledge; they voraciously "eat of the (bible forbidden) tree of knowledge (science)." A human can think and be great; he does not have to be great; he can choose to be only potentially a rational animal rather than actually a rational animal.
