IN DOUBT

You are never dedicated to something you have complete confidence in.  No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow.  They know it's going to rise tomorrow.  When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.

I thought of this line from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance while reading the post The End of the Debate.  Great line:

When you do hear the phrase "the debate is over", someone is usually trying to end a debate that is very much alive.

No one would need to repeatedly remind others that the debate is over if it truly were.
