Okay, I don't mean that literally, because I do know some things. But those few things I know are vastly outweighed by my ignorance. And yet I still feel qualified to philosophize, debate, argue, and feel superior to those I consider less smart than me. I have committed the sin of pride, and I am falling just like Lucifer did.

If you take your own words here seriously, take a moment to realize that the belief system you hold is one of innumerable others, each held with much the same conviction that you do your own. It is highly unlikely that the belief system you currently have, especially if it's the same system you were raised to believe, is the one true way.

One can never call themselves an intellectual until they have thrown completely everything they know into doubt and aggressive scrutiny.
