    I often refer to that quote, and add to it:
    "The more you learn, the more you realize you don't know."
    And my addition:
    "Therefore, one who thinks or claims to know all... has learned nothing."

    In religious/spirituality conversations, I often posit:
    "None of us KNOWS.  We hypothesize.  We theorize.  We believe.  We have faith... but we don't KNOW.  Anyone who claims to KNOW.. is lying.  Quite possibly to themselves as well."

    I usually wrap that up with my opinion that spirituality is far too much of a personal issue for attempts to convert others.  In my perspective, I've had too many personal experiences to NOT believe.  I don't expect anyone else to be convinced by my own experiences.  They must have their own.

    ...All the more argument for religious (or lack thereof) freedom, and CLEAR separation of church & state.

    Never trust anyone who considers "bleeding heart" to be an insult.
