I do what I can on these threads, but it sometimes feels like I'm banging my head against a brick wall...new information for a lot of people is scary
The point of most of my tirades (at times) is not to make people angry but to get people interested enough to say, let me look into this subject a
little further (as I have done) and (Shock and Awe !) often the things we were raised to believe in as children suddenly are revealed NOT to be what
they were originally advertised to be, shall we say !
'The Bible: the Greatest Story Ever Sold..' is just one aspect of what I am talking about. People are loathsomely ignorant about the facts and bases
of their own purported belief systems at times, it is laughable (if it weren't so darned sad !)
And this very saddening 'disconnectedness from the facts of the matter' cuts across topics not only of Religion but extends into the physical
Sciences and into Politics and History and even into Archaeology also--just to name a few areas where people have a vested interest at keeping the
status quo, well...status-----which is why ATS is such a great forum to get some of these true but rarely known ideas out into the cold light of day
and get people off their duffs to do some serious thinking (and 'soul searching' !!) about the world in which they are living (many of the reasons
why so much of this kind of material is rarely if ever seriously discussed among lay persons are reflected in my Personal Quotation below).
What a great learning tool these ATS discussions can be if people would only approach them for what they potentially are -- especially with a view
towards the spiritual and mental growth of humanity in the busy-dizzy "Information Age" !!
