The mission of this blog is to expand the awareness of the close-minded, canonical society.
In doing so, this will eradicate fear and unveil the freedom that comes with thinking independently.
Most people do not read, therefore, their stance on religious philosophy, is often skewed by what they have been taught since adolescence. Even those who study theology are cogitating on medieval literature purportedly from a Divine Being. The majority tend to repeat what they've heard since birth; what their church leaders tell them, and what little they understand about the Bible.
People who consistently quote outdated scriptures, rarely study global finance, astronomy, geology, cosmology, geography, philosophy, or any other science. They simply reassert what they've heard, maybe add a new, unproven twist every now and then, and that's the extent of their knowledge. This is why we're referred to as a dumb-downed-society because most people, after high school, never pick up another book. Except a holy book, and the majority only pick that up, dust it off, on their way to church.
The bulk of believers can't tell you one thing about Epicurus, Plato, Aristotle, Emanuel Kant, Socrates, Thomas Aquinas, Galileo Galilei, Johannes Kepler, Nicholas Copernicus, Edwin Hubble, Rene Descartes, and don't have a clue what Einstein's Theory of Relativity is about, nor do most care.
The late astrophysicist, Carl Sagan, asked the question: Who is more humble?

"One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back."
