Maybe it's true, I'm not sure:
The honestly competent scientist is the one who does not rule out what cannot be adequately assessed by science and yet is undeniable..
The honestly competent dreamer is the one who does not rule out the empiricisms of this life.
The only competent religious person ....
Oh hell, I guess the thought is basically that any sort of real competence rests on an appreciation and understanding and perhaps delight in incompetence.
Or maybe not.
