Truth and Falsehood
by: Arthur Guiterman (1871-1943)
Old Time was young, men's hearts were all untried
By Grief and Sin, when round this whirling ball
Pure Truth and Falsehood journeyed side by side
In free companionship. At evenfall
Of that long day which closed the Age of Gold
They came to Pleasure's lake, and both were glad
To cast their robes and seek those waters cold.
But Falsehood, first emerging, lightly clad
Her limbs in Truth's white garments, fresh and fair,
And swiftly fled away with mocking mirth;
While Truth, disdaining Falsehood's tattered wear,
Pursued. So still around the dizzy earth
Flies Falsehood, well-disguised in Truth's array,
While Truth runs after, naked to the day.

Therefore we see in response the tired pablum that only the religious are charitable,atheism is just a belief (it's not, it's a lack of belief), etc. etc.
The Lost Key :
One day, people saw Mullah Nasruddin out in the street searching frantically for something.
The enquisitive nature of man was on work. “What are you searching for, Mullah? They enquired.
“I’ve lost my key” replied Mullah.
The helping nature of mankind was at work. So everyone joined him, trying to help him
After some search someone had the urge to ask the place where exactly, the key was lost. So that more condensed search could be made. So, the enquiry was made for the same to Nasruddin.
“I lost the key in the house,” replied Mulla matter-o-factly.
“Then why are you searching for it in the street?” was the obvious question asked to him.
“Because there is more light here.” Replied the Mulla

What is your opinion of the quote?
I picked up the mantra from Jordan Maxwell. He has a very simple reason for believing it. He says that there's more to any story than anyone can be aware of. In my experience, that is exactly right. The logic goes like this:
No one can ever know the full truth about anything. Therefore, no one who claims to know the full truth about anything can be trusted.
Math doesn't exist. It is very assumptive.

Assuming the first 2 and the second 2 are quantities o the same thing. Math in grade school and counting on fingers and toes stays there when higher math is learned. Otherwise one is making an assumption. An assumption is not truth; it is a gamble.
