And salt waters shall be found in the sweet, and all friends shall destroy one another; then shall common-sense hide itself, and understanding withdraw itself into his secret chamber, And shall be sought of many, and yet not be found: then shall unrighteousness and incontinency be multiplied upon Earth. – 2 Esdras 5:9-10
The greatest threat to mankind isn’t a manufactured global pandemic, nor famine, nor even the third world war; it is the deliberate and systematic elimination of rational thought. Without rational thought, we are reduced to nothing more than human-animals, with the exception we now possess the means through science and technology to ensure our destruction.
Most have no idea that they suffer from this affliction, much less to what degree, nor do they realize how widespread it is. In fact, most are absolutely convinced that they are logical individuals quite capable of rational thought, based upon their knowledge of, acceptance of, and adherence to what are considered to be ‘societal norms’. The very real possibility that the entire population could be headed in the wrong direction, led by people who don’t know what they’re doing, seems to have never been considered.
Sadly, to even suggest that the very foundational beliefs, institutions and traditions which people hold dear are fundamentally flawed, and actually threaten our continued existence, is usually considered by most to be a “conspiracy theory” and thus assumed to be an insult to their intelligence. And with that emotional reaction, the door closes to the critically-important self-correction process that could stop this malignant, global epidemic in its tracks, thereby healing this sick society and everyone in it.
Emotion, all of which is ego-driven and thus fear-based, is the enemy of reason and what should be common-sense.
“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is the product of our imagination (Gen. 6:5), causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Now do not misunderstand me, danger is very real, but fear is a choice.” – from the film ‘After Earth’
Anyone who has read to this point and doesn’t recognize that they too are afflicted with this insanity, is proving they are either unwilling or incapable of learning what rational thought is, and thus is contributing to the madness, aka our mutually assured destruction. Need evidence?
Conjecture isn’t Evidence
Conjecture, by definition, is someone’s baseless personal opinion, formed without sufficient evidence. It is therefore judging unknowns such as motive or intention on the basis of one’s imagination (Gen. 6:5) rather than on solid fact.
Evidence, on the other hand, furnishes proof that can be used to ascertain the truth of a matter. It can include the honest testimony of multiple eyewitnesses, genuine documents, authentic and unaltered audio, photographic or video records of an event, and/or other associated, physical objects.
These two should never be confused with one another, as no amount of conjecture can ever be considered evidence of anything other than our penchant for gossip (Ps. 34:13-14). And yet today, conjecture is not only held up on par with actual evidence, but is often placed above it.
We literally and frequently take public opinion polls on just about everything, and then publish the results as if they are proof of something other than how successful the indoctrination has been. Celebrities, politicians and media figures offer their baseless opinions ad nauseam, to influence these public opinion polls, knowing that most of the non-thinking public will be easily persuaded by the illusion of power, social status or perceived intelligence, regardless of the lack of any evidence to substantiate their claims.
When an entire society is trained in this manner, this same irrational process finds its way into the court system, so that people’s freedom and lives hang in the (unjust) balance, often decided by money and the opinions of others (“case law”) rather than by the evidence. And we accept this corrupt system because the weaponized educational system, television, film and print media dictate what our opinions of right and wrong should allegedly be, in an ever-changing kaleidoscope of moral colours.
Logical fallacies (i.e. irrational diversionary tactics)
The incorporation of logical fallacies into what should otherwise be reasoned discussions of the facts and evidence has become so commonplace in this modern era that they go unnoticed by most.
Logical fallacies are broadly defined as a misconception resulting from one or more flaws in reasoning, where a trick or illusion in thought (by the ego/“self”) often succeeds in obfuscating facts/truth. More specifically, logical fallacies are “non sequitur”, i.e. the conclusion being drawn simply does not follow from the premise made nor the available evidence. Again, emotion plays a central role in this deceptive practice.
To illustrate just how widespread and dangerous these flaws in reasoning can be, every two-party political system is based upon a logical fallacy known as a false dichotomy or false dilemma, where people are provided the illusion of choice, as long as they choose a “representative” between one of the two parties. This magician’s trick also serves as a red herring, to divert people’s attention on the one hand away from the fact that these “free” elections are bought and paid for by the rich and powerful to divide and conquer everyone else, while the other hand is pulling their protected interests and our continued enslavement out of the hat. Adding more political parties doesn’t remedy any of this, nor address the corruption such a system breeds.
There isn’t a single political system in operation on Earth today that isn’t based upon logical fallacies and provably fraudulent misrepresentations, and yet we accept them and continue to fund them. Does that seem logical (Exod. 23:2)?
Cognitive Dissonance, aka “double-mindedness” (James 1:8) describes the mental condition and discomfort that results from holding two conflicting beliefs, values, or attitudes in the mind simultaneously. Just how pervasive is this mental disorder in today’s society?
Cognitive dissonance is misbelieving you can be placed under house arrest [locked inside your(?) home] in a “free” country, having committed no crime. It’s misbelieving you can be healed by poisoning yourself. It’s misbelieving you can be wealthy and free while being indebted and enslaved. It’s misbelieving that greed is somehow good (Exod. 20:15; Matt. 6:24; Sura 2:188), right is somehow wrong and that unrepentant criminals (aka sinners) are somehow “good people”.
It’s misbelieving you can receive good advice or fair treatment from habitual liars. It’s misbelieving that good can come from evil or vice versa (Isa. 5:20-21; Matt. 7:16-20; Sura 2:216; Sura 25:1-9). It’s misbelieving that the measure of intelligence is the ability to regurgitate the opinions, propaganda, cultural beliefs and traditions of others, without critical review. And it’s misbelieving that corporate fictions, like CHURCH and STATE (Enoch 58:1), are so real and powerful that the real human+Beings who created these corporate fictions are allegedly powerless to stop them.
It’s misbelieving that corruptible politicians acting as untouchable public masters in totally corrupt political systems are somehow “public servants”. It’s misbelieving that courts, which make up their own rules on a daily basis, can supposedly arrive at the immutable truth of a matter required to produce true justice. It’s misbelieving that corporate fictional organized religions somehow work for God, when they continually do the exact opposite of what God Commands (Isa. 3:12; Matt. 23:1-3), in places of business where God does not dwell (Acts 7:48; Acts 17:24) and specifically told us to avoid (Matt. 6:5-8; Sura 4:142; Sura 7:55; Sura 9:107-111).
It’s misbelieving that we can find without seeking. It’s misbelieving that our karma will never catch up to us (Gal. 6:7; Sura 16:30-34). It’s misbelieving that the wrong path will somehow arrive at the right destination. And it’s misbelieving that the creature is supposedly not subject to their Creator.
It should be self-evident from the few examples provided above that the entire population is suffering from cognitive dissonance in varying degrees. And worse yet, the most insane among us, who are running this lunatic asylum and its fraudulent financial system, intentionally introduce confusion through church, state and the media to induce cognitive dissonance as a means of mind-control.
One example of this technique, used successfully for centuries to con billions into believing that 3 = 1 is The Athanasian Creed, which uses the phraseology: three, but not three; one, but not one, etc., to portray the Creator and His Firstborn Son, Whom we need to get to know and love, as “incomprehensible” (John 17:3).
Another example is “democracy”, which is supposed to be the rule of the people, by the people, and for the people, based upon the truth that the majority of the people hold to be self-evident.
Today, with demon-crazy democracy being pushed by the west into the farthest reaches of the globe, the richest 1% own roughly half of the world’s wealth. It’s even more disproportionate when looking at the billionaire, and even trillionaire classes, where the latter is only a few families who own and/or control virtually all planetary resources.
What this means is the rest of us – the other 99+% of the population – are forced to live off of the table scraps from the ruling, parasitic criminal class, who are now openly declaring their intentions to steal everything they haven’t already stolen with their tyrannical “you will own nothing, and be happy about it” plan. And their sales force (the assumed world leaders and their puppet politicians) for this “great reset” would have us believe that this is somehow the will of the majority, in their warped version of what they call democracy. Do we all have Stockholm Syndrome?
When did the overwhelming majority of the people ever vote for the right to be poor and enslaved by donating their fair share of the world’s wealth and the last vestiges of freedom to the tiny minority that make up the ruling, parasitic criminal class and the banking cartel? And by what means did we become so zombified that we accept such obvious contradictions? Two words: cognitive dissonance.
An Introduction to Rational Thought
From all of the available evidence, it should be blatantly obvious that very few on this planet have even a basic understanding of what rational thought really is in this sea of confusion we are drowning in.
In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were learning directly from God how to be good, free from the influence of evil (Gen. 1:26). They were Commanded NOT to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good AND evil for good reason: to avoid the confusion and death that would inevitably result from mixing up these two polar opposites. Unfortunately, we have been following in their footsteps ever since, hence the reason so many are unable to differentiate between right (good/lawful) and wrong (evil/sinful).
The first step in correcting any error is to recognize the error exists. But how does one recognize, much less correct an error if they no longer know the difference between what is right/good/lawful (what we should be doing) and what is wrong/evil/sinful (what we shouldn’t be doing)? And knowing the world is literally filled with people who don’t know what they’re doing and thus are incapable of correcting one another, where would one turn for guidance?
The only logical answer would be to look for guidance on these issues from a perfect, incorruptible source of wisdom that is not of this world [King of kings’ Bible – John 8:14 (KJV John 8:23); John 18:36].
The good news is Our Creator, The Extra-Terrestrial King Ruler of the Universe, has sent us His Law, in writing, which clearly and specifically defines what is right, good, truthful and lawful as well as what is wrong, evil, deceitful and sinful/unlawful, to set us free from all of this confusion. His Law is the ONLY Criterion (Sura 2:53; Sura 3:1-3) for discerning truth from lies. And He has sent His Angel/Messenger (Exod. 23:20-23; Mark 9:7; Sura 7:157-158), along with The Law, to be our Teacher and Guide on how to reconnect to The Small, Still Voice of Reason that is the Sole/Soul Source of all rational thought.
I think, therefore “I AM”
“Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probable reason why so few engage in it.” – Henry Ford
Throughout this article scriptural citations from the Old Covenant, New Covenant and the Koran (Qur’an) have been provided, for everyone’s benefit. Because of the current state of the world or, more specifically, the state of people’s minds here on Earth (Luke 18:8), it seems necessary to clarify these texts have absolutely nothing to do with the corporate fictional organized religions that use and abuse them. ALL organized religions were created to intentionally cause confusion and promote lies, thereby creating a totally unnecessary barrier between us and our Creator, The Source of all rational thought. And while the story of the Garden of Eden is probably familiar to those who frequent the very synagogues, churches and mosques, etc. that are condemned throughout Scripture, the fact that the “original sin” in the Garden of Eden is being repeated in every single one of those man-made temples, without exception, seems to have never been realized.
ALL organized religion takes a bit of the truth (Scripture) and mixes it with a bunch of lies (the made-up rules, doctrines and traditions of men), and has been doing it for so long that people no longer know the difference between the two. The confusion caused by this abominable combination of good/truth and evil/lies is then eaten up by the people, who not only believe it, but take pleasure in it (2 Thess. 2:7-12). A “half-truth” is still a LIE, regardless of how appealing it may sound.
Organized religions teach their adherents/victims to ritualistically “pray” in vain repetitions, according to their irrational traditions, often instructing them when and where to do it in addition to how. But are any of these practices actually prayer? If not, what is true prayer?
When we pray in the correct way, we are not asking God to do something, God is inspiring us to act in His place to enact His Will on Earth. We are intended to be the emissaries of the Divine on this planet.
True prayer is the method, the visualization, that God expects us to use in discerning His Will and implementing it in the physical dimension twenty-four hours every day. True prayer is therefore rational thinking, where we link up with our Creator and receive His Guidance and Assistance in the moment. It requires a humble approach (Prov. 15:33; Sura 7:205-206), in the privacy of one’s mind, and listening, so The Small, Still Voice of Reason can be heard at all times.
This is how and where all good/rational ideas originate. It’s how God’s Kingdom operates and how His Will may be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven. It doesn’t require people dressed in silly costumes, or temples made with human hands, or a bunch of made-up rites and rituals, all of which are not only counterproductive but detrimental to the process of rational thought. All we need to do is THINK (engage in spritual converse with our Creator) about what we’re doing all the time. The internet was literally given to us to provide a glimpse of what it would be like to be linked to The Source of ALL Wisdom and Understanding, and to each other. Link, think and don’t be a fink.
As long as someone is unable or unwilling to differentiate between clean and unclean, between just and unjust, between wholesome and harmful, between good and evil, and between truth and lies, they will remain confused and thus incapable of rational thought, regardless of what their ego may be telling them. This is exactly why God gave us His Perfect Law of Liberty, to teach us how to correctly differentiate between right and wrong, thereby freeing our minds from the grip of the irrational thoughts and fears that eminate from the imagination (Gen. 6:5) and cause all of this unnecessary confusion (1 Cor. 14:33). Confusion which distracts us from remaining steadfast in the present moment.
Now you know why we’ve been told to establish constant prayer, i.e. think about what we are doing at all times (pray/think without ceasing).
See: 1 Sam. 12:23; Ps. 116:2; Luke 18:1; 1 Thess. 5:17; Eph. 6:18; Sura 2:277; 4:77; 4:162; 5:13; 5:58, 6:72; 6:92, 7:170; 8:3; 9:5; 9:11; 9:18; 9:71; 10:87; 11:114; 13:22; 14:31; 14:37; 14:40; 17:78; 20:14; 20:132; 21:73; 22:35; 22:41; 22:78; 24:37; 24:56; 27:3; 29:45; 30:31; 31:4; 31:17; 33:33; 35:18; 35:29; 42:38; 58:13; 73:20; 98:5
We MUST awaken from our spiritual slumber and stop repeating the same destructive behaviour over and over, expecting different results. It’s Time to Think (Dan. 12:1-2; Eph. 5:14). It’s always time to think.
