How difficult it is to challenge someoneís beliefs?
Believe me it is not an easy thing to
do, much much better people than me have tried and failed miserably!
Why do you think this is so?
Well here is my ideaís on the subject,
you might or might not agree.
are basically hunters, but we have been the hunted as well, this has engendered
some very basic responses in us. We are not comfortable when things change, as
hunted the worse thing that can happen to you is that the environment you rely
on suddenly changes fundamentally, this makes you vulnerable, so change is not
good, or the first reaction to change is, what the Hell? No way am I having
that, we just have to be dragged kicking and screaming
You donít have to think
we accept things as they are (or as they always have been ), then we do not
have to think, we do not have to make decisions or take responsibility, so much
easier donít you think !!
believe what you are told by your parents, your teachers, what you read in the
newspapers and what you watch on the television.
newspapers know better donít they? The television people are professionals they
know what they are talking about, and if they say so, who are you to argue with
parents/friends parents did it this way
You remember your parents or your
friends telling you that their parents did it this way, so it must be correct,
I read it in a book
You read it in a book that was written
by an expert on the subject!
∑ Someone said it on television
Again a so-called expert told you on
the television/newspaper/book, and who are you to challenge this expert!
∑ Genetic Coding
Organisms learn by their mistakes and
eventually this becomes recorded in the genes and gets passed on to your
progeny. This is a survival trait and is present in almost all living beings (I
am an expert and I say so, so you better believe it !!!)
Now letís look at these factors.
The comfort factor
Not only it is easier to do things as
they always have been done, you donít have to think!
So we go with the crowd, what our peers do, our friends do, what we are taught at school and what we read in the media and are shown on television. The trouble is that we never question what we are being told, because that would make us stand out and visible!
The television tells us our sweat
stinks, so we go out and buy de-odorants by the dozen, the newspapers says we
need jeans by Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren to look good, because Cindy
Crawford or Elle McPherson always wear those jeans, otherwise we are
going to look fat and lumpy. We need to buy so and so brand of T-shirts, we need
to eat so and so food, otherwise our health will suffer ruinous harm!
Do we stop and think, Hey this is to
the benefit of the people whose products we buy? Like Hell we do!
I mean what a brilliant advertising
idea, you buy a designer jeans or T shirt, they have their name plastered all
over this pair of jeans or T shirt, you pay a fortune to buy this piece of
clothing and then provide the company with free advertising!!! How gullible
have we become! Go on look at the clothes you wear, the deodorant you use, the
perfume/aftershave you are wearing, the food you are eating. Which one of these
did you buy because it was good value for money? Or was actually good for you?
Work it out! If you can afford it you will buy what the television or radio or
the newspaper told you to buy. Do you do any kind of research about what the
materials/ingredients are? Where was it made? What was involved in making it?
Was there for example child labour involved in manufacturing the T-shirt you
are going to buy? Like Hell we do!! We buy whatever the current buzz word is,
only those of us who cannot afford it go to Wal-Mart and buy their brand, it is
not out of choice and you know it. It is easier to trust the media than have to
work to find out the details. Believe it or not this is exactly what the people
who screw up your lives depend on.
My parents/teachers told me
What we learn from our parents firstly
and what we learn from our teachers secondly are the two biggest factors that
dictate our lives and shape them.
As parents we tell our children what
is right and what is wrong, but is it really the truth?
I have the religion of my parents,
because that is the way I was brought up, but is that necessarily the right
religion? Is my view of God and the creation the right view? People from other
religions will tell me that is not so and I have been misled! So who is right?
This person who might have studied the
religions of the world for the last 50 years and has the scriptures coming out
of his/her ears or my parents? The answer as all of us know is my parents!!
Long live Pavlov! For those of who donít know Pavlov was, he was a Russian
scientist who did experiments on behavioural science mainly with dogs, he
established that repetition would make a response reflex. This same fact is
used by all of us in our common lives, sportsmen practise the same shot over
and over until it becomes ingrained in the brain and can be played without
thinking, we read our course books over and over and memorize the text for the
examinations. Thus have we been conditioned by our parents and our teachers and
it is extremely difficult to forget these responses. You have to unlearn and
then relearn completely new responses and who has the time for that? Right?
Right! So we carry our burdens with us and then pass it on to our children.
Teachers shape our lives, a lot of what we believe after what our parents tell us comes from what our teachers tell us, but as adults what we forget is, that these teachers are as humans as we are, they have the same weaknesses, they have the same flaws of character that we do, and they have the same conditioning as we have from our parents and teachers! So what makes their view the correct one? Nothing!
What do I need to become a teacher?
Attend a course receive a piece of paper that says I qualified and I am a
teacher! Believe me I am not belittling teachers in any way or form, I have
great respect for teachers, but what I am trying to convey to you is that they
are not necessarily right.
But that is the way we are brought up
and that is what we are conditioned to believe.
I read it in a book!
I read it in a book so it must be
correct mustnít it? No is the emphatic answer!
We are brought up to believe that
whatever is the written word is correct, that is what we are taught in schools,
the teacher opens up a book reads it to you and then gets you to memorize it,
and that is what the truth is, who ascertained the truth? Humans like you and
me, who wrote the book, humans like you and me, they might have done more research
than you, but donít forget they also had the opportunity to colour it with
their prejudices and views as well.
I saw it on television
Over the last 20 or so years
television has become the media of choice, I can bet that most of our children
watch more television than they read books or newspapers! At least the majority
of ours, I know someone will stand up and say well my children donít, I believe
it, I am talking about the majority.
Remember what I said earlier about
Pavlov and his dogs? Well if you sit a kid in front of the telly and let them
watch the same message over and over, what do you think is likely to happen?
Does the penny drop? Yes they are going to start believing that what they are
being told is the truth, in most cases, a young mind does not differentiate
between truth and lies, good and evil, after all these are man made concepts
and a child has not learnt them yet, so it is accepted without being examined
When an organism is faced with
survival, it will learn or it will perish. Major reflexes are ingrained in us,
like who teaches a newborn baby how to suckle on its motherís breast? How can a
new-born baby swim? These things are survival traits and have been learned and
deemed crucial to survival so haves become a part of our genetic coding.
And now what is all this leading toÖ.?
I want you to examine your
surroundings, your life your interactions with other people and see how much of
it is learned reflex and how much of it you actually think about, using your
thinking mind, not the learned reflexes of Pavlovís dogs.
I truly believe we are slowly
stagnating, not because we want to, but because we are being forced to, there
may be a conspiracy theory I donít know so I will refrain from doing so, but I
truly believe that we are being turned into a society of unthinking uncaring
automatons, we are being slowly conditioned to stop thinking for ourselves and
let someone else do the thinking for us. If you do not believe me look at the
world around you, look at the houses we are living in, look at the cars we
drive, look at foods we eat the programs we watch on television, the books we
read. Do you see a similarity? Look closer does something scream out to you
that things are not heading the way they should?
Why do we need lights or doors that
will work by voice commands? Why do we need cars that will decide our route and
our speed for us? The message here is that we are totally incapable of making
such decisions. Why do we need so much automation in our houses, in our lives?
Why do we need machines to do our work for us? The message again is that we are
totally incapable of making a rational decision, the machines we have made can
make these decisions better for us, so why donít we shut up and let our betters
decide for us! If you watch television, or read magazines, or read the papers
the message is the same, our decision making capability is suspect or worse
totally non-existent, so we should let others make the decisions for us. You
draw your own conclusions!
Are we becoming lazier than our
ancestors? The answer is maybe we are! Or at least led to believe that we are.
Why do we keep on being told that automating this or that will be good for us?
Why are we being told that we need to genetically modify food so that more can
be grown per acre? What has happened to the acreage of the world? Has it
suddenly reduced, I know that the population of the world has gone up and much
more resources are needed, very true, but what about all the food that we
waste? How about the millions of tons of grain, of produce that is destroyed,
to keep artificial prices in the market place? Wonít that have balanced out
what we are trying to do by artificial means?
Why are we being told to inject all
kinds of poison into our bodies on the pretext of being good for our health? If
I told you to break your thermometer take the mercury out and inject it into
your veins on the pretext that will be good for your health will you do it? No
but if your doctor gives you the same thing packaged in a bright shiny packet
and tells you to do it, you will happily oblige! Why? Is it because the doctor
told you so? Or the package makes it more authoritative? Or is it because some
super model told you so on the television? Or some actor wearing a doctorís
white coat told you in an advertisement, which also showed happy laughing
children playing in a playground? Go on admit it, it is one of those isnít it?
You never investigated what the doctor gave you in the shiny package, did you
look at the list of ingredients? Did you even understand what they meant? Did
you even know what the side effects would be? Did you know what that shiny
package is going to do to your body? A big emphatic No is the answer!! I know
people who will go berserk if I smoked a cigarette in their presence, because
all the harmful effects of smoking but who then will go the next day to their
doctor and get their kids vaccinated! Godís above you tell me the logic of
this! People will tell you the evil of hunting and killing animals and then
happily go fishing and use hooks to catch fish, oh we throw them right back!
Yeah right! The fish donít feel the pain of the hook! Yeah right! And how do we
know this gem? Because some expert told us so! The same experts who told us,
that our earth is the centre of the universe, the same experts who told us the
world is square!!!
Letís wake up and try to think again
for ourselves, let us not forget that we reached this privileged position
because our ancestors thought, if they had followed the same route as before
them we would still be living in caves.
Make your decisions because of
informed choice not because your doctor/clergy/teacher/friend told you so, take
responsibility for your actions, you are the one who will suffer the
consequences if your decision is wrong. Take an example if you vaccinate your
kids and they get brain damage who suffers? You and your kid! Not the
pharmaceutical company that made the drug! What are you going to do? Sue them?
So what, they can afford to pay you some amount of money which is totally
meaningless to them, because they have made billions upon billions and what is
a few thousand paid out in recompense, in the meantime you are the one stuck
with heartbreak and tears for the rest of your life. So donít go on the
assumption that you can make them pay, it will be a meaningless gesture, make
the decision before you act, donít follow blindly, donít follow the hype, donít
follow the phony advertisements and statements made by so called experts,
remember these people are getting paid to say whatever crap they are spouting,
your welfare is the last thing on their or their benefactors minds.
The government will look after your
interests! If you believe that you probably also believe that pigs fly! These
are same governments which will build stealth bombers at 20 billion a throw but
only spend 50 billion on the whole of the welfare budget for the country! Do
you realize that if the U.S. government decided to make just 2 less stealth
bombers they could double the budget for Health Care?† And you believe these people are going to take care of you?
I love the line from Men In Black
where Tommy Lee Jones is telling Will Smith
A thousand years ago we knew the
earth was the centre of the universe, 500 years ago we knew the earth
was flat and 5 minutes ago you knew we are alone in the universe.
How very true! How many other truths
like these we know ??
Try and read the following statements
with a straight face and mark them as true or false as you believe them
∑ Politicians are honest and they work untiringly to make our lives better
make drugs because they have your good at heart and they have absolutely no
interest in making billions.
We need genetically
modified food because we do not have enough land left for farming
We need pesticides for
our crops to protect them
Experts know what they
are talking about and would never lie or admit they do not know enough openly
Most researchers do
research because they want to make the world a better place
This research is funded
by completely honest upstanding moral people who have the good of mankind at
You believe in statistics
Vaccination is good for
All the chemicals and
additives in our food are necessary for our well being
Doctors always tell you
the truth, they do not get any backhanders from the drug companies to promote
Car Mechanics always tell
you the truth when you take your car for service
Vaccinations have been
the root cause why disease is being controlled today
Most of the modern diseases
are not man made, or man caused
Atomic, Hydrogen and
Neutron bombs were made for the welfare of mankind
food is good for you
formaldehyde, aborted fetus cells, and virus leaden animal cells into your body
is going to make you healthy
I will continue this in part 2 of this article, in the meantime
let me have your thoughts, I am not afraid if you laugh behind my back or brand
me a lunatic! But then again maybe you shouldnít be either for the sake of this
earth and the future of our children.
