I like sceptics but not cynics:
cynics are as fascist about their opinion as a religious person is about theirs.
“sceptic” – noun
a person inclined to question or doubt accepted opinions.
“cynic” – noun
a person who believes that people are motivated purely by self-interest rather than acting for honourable or unselfish reasons.
It has been said to me that people with “uni” degrees don’t believe “this” stuff

The head of the geography department when I was at teachers college was a dowser.
Our culture and our education system programs us to think a certain way:
Original thinkers think outside this programming.
