Morning Scepticism: Absolutes

To have an absolutist worldview is something I can't really understand. History, if nothing else, should teach us that holding absolutist views isn't a wise idea. So for those who try to build a fortress of unassailable rightness, to me, seem to be doing little more than protecting their sacred cows. This is not to disparage the desire or search for truth, but to question why absolutes would be considered desirable in that quest. they're not desirable, they're a hindrance on making real progress.
