the greatest enemy…

For all the Trump worshippers losing their damn minds when anyone dares criticize their orange god-emperor. What you're supporting is authoritarianism.:

Question everything…especially authority.

We now live in an age of fake news, consistent and uncontrollable lying from the highest office in the nation and supposedly intelligent political leaders opening denying the scientific claims and clear evidence of climate change. Blind belief in anything has become more dangerous than ever before.

We need to question everything, and that includes our own beliefs.  But, Einstein is absolutely correct. Blind belief in authority is the greatest enemy of the truth.

help me understand…

In a world of growing violence, a world where hatred, bitterness and vengeance seems to rule, we need to be aware that are values are shaped by what we see and absorb. It might be “just entertainment” but it’s impact on us is only too real.

those who only watch

To be courageous in the face of evil are those who put their trust in God.

Deploring the evil that we see happening in the world isn’t enough. We are not spectators. Silence in the face of evil places us on the side of the perpetrators.

All of us have a voice. All of us have the ability to speak out for those who are oppressed, those who are disenfranchised, those among us ignored and powerless.

Those who only watch are partners with those doing the evil. Our silence in the face of injustice is tacit agreement.

All of us have a voice. We just need  the courage to use it.

holy curiosity

Michio Kaku Quotes | Einstein_quote_slide.010

Einstein is right on. A holy curiosity helps keep one’s life and one’s problems in perspective. And that is a good thing.

The Bible says we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Having a  holy curiosity allows us to find true joy in the mysteries of the glorious creation of which we are but a small part.
