Bullshit: (n) stupid or untrue talk
Not everything is bullshit.
Matter of fact, one great step toward maturity is realizing that many of the things we believe today will change in the future, and maybe evendisappear.
After all, ignorance is not the absence of knowledge, but rather, the refusal to accept it.
All of us are ignorant in the sense that there are things we don’t know, but we will not be deemed ignorant in the future if we’re willing to step away from piles of bullshit and find the truth that has been proven.
Whether it’s our politics, our education, our profession or our faith, each one should be able to endure the evolution of new data, which further clarifies life on Planet Earth.
If your beliefs or your convictions need to ridicule an educated revelation, you are no longer a follower of truth, but a shoveler of bullshit.
Each one of us needs to acknowledge this, or we become either dangerous or obnoxious, or an annoying blending of the pair.
Many good folk in 1491, who were well-schooled and religious, were convinced that the world was flat. Several years later, when it was proven to be round, the truly intelligent rolled with the punches and realized that science was not destroyed by the revelation, nor was God shrunk.
The ones who continued to contend that the Earth was shaped like a cracker had to promote their bullshit ad nauseam.
How can you tell if you’ve become a bullshitter?
There is a tiny little bell that rings in the human soul when we hear something that resounds with the truth.
Stop muffling the bell.
