Why in the hell are you wasting your time trying to change peoples' minds? It's not that they resist, it's more that they're incapable of seeing
reality. They've traded reality for comfortable pretension. I don't even think it's voluntary. It takes a certain mental blindness to place your
life in the hands of blind faith. It's not something of which you can convince them otherwise. It's more of a disease or syndrome with no cure, or
straight-forward brainwashing. Either way, there is no way you're going to rid these people of their affliction. They love fear. It keeps them
humble. I don't try to change anyone. I just analyze them, and try to figure out why they're so confused and scared. They can only find the truth
themselves. Some never do. The best I can figure, it's just a built in weakness and gullibility.

You know though, based on evidence that I have, this whole belief thing is a system of purposeful control. The controllers are creating spirituality,
new age, religions, other beliefs, and set them slightly different to allow for opposition. They require humanity to be in blind belief and to be
DEVOID of any TRUTH. And anyone who argues for LACK OF TRUTH but instead thinks DECEPTION AND LIES are important, I'd have to beg to differ.
Question: Belief is blind faith in someone's statement or an idea that is not based necessarily on any evidence. Sure it can have evidence, but does
that merit for belief? The reality of our world with the controllers is NOT my belief, it just is a logical deduction based on observation and
research, and also it can be TOTALLY WRONG. It is a possibility, just like the inventor of a lightbulb was doing calculations and saw a possibility
and had an idea. He didn't BELIEVE that the lightbulb would necessarily 100% work as he expected, but he had plenty of evidence to suggest it MIGHT.
Why do I need to believe anything when I can just research and see where things lead? Why assume I found the answer!
For example: Scientists see the universe expanding so they say it might've started with the Big Bang. That's a theory, an assumption. It's not a
belief, it's a logical deduction based on observation. They are not claiming THAT IS what it truly is, they just said that BASED ON OUR EVIDENCE that
is a POSSIBILITY. That is all I say. There are many possibilities and some have more evidence than others. Some things are completely 100% known to be
true without exception. Others are only backed up by evidence.
Sadly, many things are assumped to be true without any possible evidence, and they have an ARMY of people backing this up. Religion. They are composed
of people who KNOW it's a deception but promote it for the sake of getting rich, and others who truly believe it, but without any reason.
Who do you think is smarter, the people who KNOW for a fact that religion is based on lie sandwiches, or those who believe it's true and live their
life by it and pray to their invisible God. I'm not asking who is right, but who indeed is wiser.
