A few things I've learned...

1. If something seems really stupid to me, there is a possibility that I'm completely misunderstanding it and, therefore, I am actually the one that is stupid.

2. If my religion makes me prioritize keeping rules (doctrines, creeds, statements of faith, particular scriptural interpretations, etc.) over treating people with kindness, then I have probably misunderstood what the original teacher of my religion (Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha, Moses, etc.) was trying to convey and, in doing so, I have quite possibly become the antithesis of what my religion was supposed to be about.

3. It is very liberating to say "I don't know." The older I get and the more I learn, the more often I say this.
