Q. What are your grounds for believing such and such?
A. My experiences are my 'grounds', of course - what else?
Q. By your 'experiences', do you really mean your 'prejudices'?
Each opinion is an island of certainty in a sea of puzzlement.
Do we then 'deserve' such opinions?
Rarely do we 'deserve' them, but we certainly need them.
We need them so that we can survive on our islands.
