“This is a battle against arrogance, which breeds ignorance and intolerance,” says Wall.
Wheaton IL (Vocus/PRWEB) March 23, 2011
If knowledge really equaled power, would America be in a position of authority? Not as it is today, says philosopher/author James Kirk Wall. And in his new book, Agnosticism: The Battle Against Shameless Ignorance, he doesn’t hesitate to challenge those who are loud and egotistical yet uninformed.
“This is a battle against arrogance, which breeds ignorance and intolerance,” says Wall. “In a country ‘by the people, for the people,’ it’s the individuals that have to be strong. The more people take time to think, the stronger the country; the less they think, the weaker. This book is about thinking, with the intent of promoting stronger-minded individuals to strengthen the nation.”
An oft-debated and misused topic, agnosticism is not a synonym for confusion nor describes someone offended by the views of others. Instead, Wall clarifies the term ‘agnostic’ as "someone on a continuous quest for truth, offended only by those who refuse to be informed.”
“Agnosticism promotes strength and places responsibility on the individual to find the truth. This book is armament against the shameless ignorance seen every day in our society through constant streams of misinformation and pressure to accept unjustified conclusions.”
A guidebook to keeping an open mind and searching for new possibilities, Wall’s Agnosticism delves into the overlap of science, religion and philosophy in the pursuit of knowledge, understanding and truth.
