Rational Minded Ignorance
By Greg Vanden Berge
Have you ever took the time to think about why people believe in some of the
statements made by others or even took the time to question your own
How many of us watch fantasy shows to escape reality or listen to the news and believe everything they say?
It's hard to imagine, but people really do believe practically everything they hear and it's got to stop. We've got to start asking the right questions and demanding that they’re answered.
Statements like, Read my lips, no new taxes, I did not have sexual relations with that woman or I am not a crook can no longer be tolerated, but they are.
I can't tell you how many times I've watched the stock market rise or fall, simply because someone fell off of their bicycle, in Antarctica. Of course I'm kidding, but I'm not really that far from the truth, am I.
What about religious leaders who claim to have the answers, but cannot validate their own religious beliefs. If God exists, then we should bring him out of the closet and share him with everyone.
What about Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy or Angels, Demons and Gods. I'm not even going to mention Satan, evil or exorcisms, but I just did, didn't I.
We really do need to put an end to rationally minded ignorance, so even if you don't read this book, at least think about the next thing you hear, that can rationally be doubted and make a conscious choice, not to believe it, until it has actually been validated.
