“We finally got it right.”

This comic (via St. Thomas the Doubter) captures so perfectly something I’ve said time and time again: If we’re convinced that those who came before us got important things wrong (like slavery or the earth’s place in the solar system) and those who come after us will get important things wrong (like, say, being way too permissive about sexuality), then we have to ask ourselves, just how arrogant are we, thinking we’re the only ones who got it all right?

Yes, passionately strive to get it right. But we must be humble enough to recognize that we’re just as fallible as everyone else.
