Letters: Many truths

In our modern society, everyone knows. We all know the answers without a doubt.

I’ve seen enough Christians blindly stand with Israel because that is what they are trained to do. No one is questioning their own convictions as good humans must.

Why are we not philosophizing anymore; why is there no longer a greater importance on questioning our truths?

We all have an answer; no one can admit they do not know.

I do not know how to fix Israel and Palestine, I do not know who’s right (probably neither), but those who are religious, they claim to know without a shadow of a doubt.

How do you know? Because your book tells you?

What about another book that contradicts that? Why is your book the important book?

All I want is for people to stop killing one another. I want them to see that they are being foolish in fighting over who’s entitled to what. That fight is meaningless and never-ending.

I’ve lost hope for the human race. No one exercises the power of critical thinking; we just jump headfirst into what we think and hold that steadfast, even in the face of enormous evidence to the contrary.

This is not what the human existence is about; it’s about working together, discovering the truths — the human experience.

In a world full of truths, how likely is it that you just happened to stumble upon the true-truth? Isn’t it just as likely another “truth” is true, or perhaps they are all just nonsense.

But no, instead we cling to our crucifixes, our idols, our statues and our books.

We get to feel all warm and fuzzy from having the truth in our hands and feel comfortable condemning to the demons all nonbelievers, the heathens who fail to see our truth.
