DETERMINING TRUTH

     
 

DETERMINING TRUTH

Mostly a Direct Excerpt from the Book:

There of course is no sure way to tell if something is true or if someone is telling the truth. We are even told that lie detector tests are some times not conclusive. However, there are a few things that should make us more alert when we hear them. Should we listen to others? Absolutely I believe. That is how we learn and at times even receive needed warnings. However, deciding later whether what we heard is true or not is important.

EXTREMES Should be a Warning

In my own experience, if what we hear deals in extremes, it would give me a caution flag on whether it is true or not. I find that the world we live in is seldom extreme, but much more often, a combination of good things and not so good things. Some examples that I have found in my own life:

  • There are no races of humans that are all good or bad. There are also none where everyone in that race is evil or is always a victim.

  • There are no countries, no nationalities that I see as being all good or bad.

  • There are no groups, no political parties, no religions, where everyone in it is all good or all bad.

  • Even an individual, including you and me, have good points and bad points. There is no such thing as a human being to my knowledge who always does everything good or bad.

The above should be obvious since most of us know that racism is wrong thinking that everyone in a group is simply good or bad. But sometimes some people seem to think that only applies to this group or to that group. No. Prejudice is always both wrong and inaccurate when applied to any group.

 

 
 
     
Book Logic Sciece God and Human Intelligence   Book Logic, Science, God, and Human Intelligence

In this book I tried to explore how far Human Intelligence has come, and how far logic can take us beyond that. And my approach was with an open mind trying to be free from at least the normal ideologies that surround us daily. What I found surprised me. Not the answer ... but that many times we are simply asking the wrong questions. We know now more than we used to. Science has gone far. We know a bit about Science and the Universe even though there is much more to know. Regardless of what we believe and wish to believe, we should at least get our thinking and our discussions into the 21st century. Some of the old arguments on all sides no longer seem to make sense, at least to me, when we view them with our 21st century logic. Is this book meant to convince you of anything? No. That would make it just another ideology. The purpose is to do much the opposite ... to get the reader to think about things that perhaps they never thought about before, but armed with at least human intelligence. And then... the new thinking may surprise you ... as it also surprised me at times.
