The key to knowledge is the desire to LEARN. Especially the desire to learn something that opposes what you have been taught is the truth, but isn't.
It is a desire to know TRUTH, & not just what you have been told, but to sort it out for ones' self. professor

To doubt is to have mistrust.

We are all capable of learning.It's what you do with it that brings you to a better understanding.

We know accurately only when we know little, with knowledge doubt increases.

@serene56:

It has nothing to do with doubting something, but a healthy CURIOSITY about comparing different views & then making your own choice about what you will think or believe.
It's a shame so many people never question what they believe or WHY they believe it. Hence, stupidity & prejudice prevail. doh

Do I have to doubt the validity of my paella to acquire a recipe for chocolate cake?

Perhaps a key to knowledge is realising there is no one key.

I think its ONE of the keys to knowledge. If we didn't doubt, we then wouldn't challenge nor question. We would then, in turn, maintain the status quo and not progress.

I am sure that many world-changing and life-changing events wouldn't have happened if someone somewhere wasn't in doubt that it could be done, or that there was a better way of doing something, i.e. organ transplants, developments in modern science, advances in democracy, social and moral acceptances of things that were tolerated in previous generations, etc, etc....

What IS key, also is what we do with that knowledge. We can harness it for the greater good or use it unwisely or maliciously......?
