I try not to believe anything, because a belief is like a pacifier. At 47, I'm really getting too old for such things. But you make some very good
points OP that I will take into consideration.
Finally someone sensible!
Belief is like a white cain. It's very useful when you are blind, and thus can't see. You have to have something to grope around with, but it might
yield erroneous results, not being able to see it directly.
Many people seem to fall back on 'believing' things, instead of keeping the ball in the air so you can actually investigate it better from all kinds
It's difficult for me to understand (not the legalese meaning of the word though) why people, why ANYONE would actually choose to 'believe'.
Belief is like an 'ultimate conclusion', it completely stops you from seeking, searching, finding out, investigating, researching and sniffing out
the truth about something. It also distinquishes the flame of wanting to know the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth! You SETTLE for
something, and that settlement becomes permanent.
You no longer have that topic/object/thing/whatever open for processing and ponderings, you have in essence petrified it, so that it's shape may
never be changed by new information.
This is dangerous. But this is what TPTB wants us all to succumb into. How many movies, TV shows and songs use that word in a commanding or
How much of 'belief' indoctrination must we go through before certain people will wake up to what they are being fed?
"You gotta believe!" is the very common message in all kinds of entertainment, and it's usually done when emotionally manipulative musical score is
blaring in the background and something 'heartwarming' or 'touching' is happening onscreen.
Belief is for the blind, and for the fools. It's the end of seeking, it's the lazy way out. It's a mental crutch for the perfectly healthy!
It's easier to believe than to actually find out, or let things remain 'uncertain', until you find more about them. For decades, I wondered why
people never seem to be able to "take things as possibilities", to leave them as 'uncertain', until they can find out more. They always wanted to
IMMEDIATELY label them into neat, little categories, and if they couldn't, they would either DENY or BELIEVE them.
Is this intelligent process of an adult human being?
I don't think it is. I think it's the childish process of a dumbed-down, indoctrinated and brainwashed ape-demon-sheeple, that cannot think for
Belief is not necessary, EVER.
I once thought it was, but then I started questioning that thought - or "belief" that I had about 'belief'.
I found a plethora of other things that you can do, that are much more honest, much better, respectful, and not obstacles to processing and finding
out the truth.
I can't list all of them at once - my mind is not very effective, and my memory has been weakening for a long time now, if I remember correctly.. (:
But here are some 'alternatives' to belief:
- finding out, researching, learning, investigating
- taking as a possibility (leaving as "uncertain" until you find out more, and then reassess the whole thing)
- using likelyhoods ("It's pretty likely that this is true", or "It's over 97% likely for this to be true")
- taking a neutral stance (until you find out more)
- processing (information/feelings/whatever)
- testing (even if just in your mind)
- logical thinking
Believing is just as stupid as denying (and it seems that ATS creators are well aware of these two things being almost like polar opposites - because
if you don't BELIEVE ignorance, then you have to DENY it, right? Obviously the same school of thought as the 'believe' crowd, which makes one
wonder about the motives and forces behind the whole ATS and it's slogans).
Both stop all processing of the thing in question. When you deny it, you deny the possibility of it, and you deny any further research into it. Case
will be closed, even though it should logically remain open.
Belief does the same exact thing, just as blindly and stupidly, but it's like 'blind acceptance' without any basis.
As far as that page about Schumann Resonance goes, it has several really idiotic claims, like the claims of Al Bielek, a fantasy-storyteller who has
been thoroughly debunked (I hate saying this, but they really investigated his claims), and who I suspected because of what he once said, until I
found out him to be a fraud. These lies are presented as the truth in that web page, without any criticism. Also predictions about 2003 that never
came true can be found there.
I do know that time has sped up, though.
I've changed my eating habits and have been living the hermit lifestyle for a while now. I live in an extremely quiet place.
This happened to me too, kind of automatically. Not a conscious choice. Charlimit approaches. 654321
