"The fact that you can come up with an intelligent argument for your position is not by itself evidence for that position. You need to ask yourself, can I come up with a really smart argument for the other side as well. And that is what you need to argue against!"
He recommends we all read 'Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid' by Douglas Hofstadter.
