Beware of falling prey to those promising “illumination” as they will lead you down a path to nowhere but further darkness.
Blaming Christianity whenever someone claiming to be Christian does something wrong is like blaming vegetarianism whenever someone claiming to be vegetarian eats meat.
Beware of allowing the postulations, conjectures, and finalities of others (purporting to be more knowledgeable than you) to limit your own abilities of discernment, critical thinking, and observing what is right in front of you.
“There is no greater form of arrogance and egotism than quoting oneself.”
“To postulate that the development and survival of the fittest is entirely a consequence of chance mutations seems to me a hypothesis based on no evidence and irreconcilable with the facts. These classical evolutionary theories are a gross over-simplification of an immensely complex and intricate mass of facts, and it amazes me that they are swallowed so uncritically and readily, and for such a long time, by so many scientists without murmur of protest.”
–Sir Ernst Chain, Nobel Prize winner
Whereas deceivers of yesterday spoke in tongues; the deceivers of today speak in jargon.
