WELCOME TO CRITICAL THINKING
Debunking false dogmas.

The terror of constant brainwashing indeed spells hopelessness for billions.
A static intellect is when predetermination takes the place of honest inquiry and truth is suppressed. The culprit is misguided religion which leads to fanaticism, barbarism and superstition. This form of credulity is the catalyst of existing adverse and prejudicial conditions that have plagued mankind for nearly 5,000 years.

"When the time of destruction is at hand the intellect becomes perverted." Vridha Chan. 16:17.

Can a fool, fool God?
- Feb 08, 2002

What Baseball-club owner would pay his worst ball-player the same money as his best? Since he is the owner he can do anything and even through compassion make such a reward. But let's measure the disadvantages of such a measure, his club would go bankrupt and his worst players would never strive to be better while his best players would do less since it makes no sense to be the best. Baseball will become non-competitive and the millions who would be deprived of its entertainment will no longer support it, not to mention the thousands that will be affected by employment. If there were such an owner who lacks such business sense, he would be called a fool, won't he?

 A fool has no value for time or knowledge and so he remains a fool all his life. It certainly requires no effort to be a fool and in the end he/she repents for being a fool and gains salvation. On the other hand, a wise man values his time and works diligently and strenuously daily all his life, in his efforts through austerity and abstinence to attain higher wisdom also gains salvation.
Now I ask what would we call the 'All-powerful' God of the Torah, Bible, Qur'an, Puranas, Zend Avesta, Guru Grantha, and all that other false dogmas that can do anything, who gives the same reward of heaven to both a fool and a wise man? To an intelligent soul, he is not only mortal like the Ball-club owner but even more foolish. In reality, a fool who follows a false dogma is only fooling him/herself.

Redemption can only be a fool's passport to a fool's paradise.

Is there any such thing as a wise person?

BBC News - Jan 4th 2016 - Is there any such thing as a wise person?

An excellent question but who can answer it, but some one wise?
Who would raise his/her hand claiming to be wise?

It is the same when it comes to a fool. Is there any such thing as a fool?
Who would admit being a fool?
How would a fool knows if he is a fool or not? Again only a some one wise knows the answer.

"Get wisdom," says the Bible, "and with all thy getting get understanding."

Really, the Bible still teaches the earth is flat and the sun is moving - how can it make anyone wise?

A wise man is one who knows the origin or truth of matter and nature.

Re: Is there any such thing as a wise person?

"Get wisdom," says the Bible, "and with all thy getting get understanding." It's hard to take issue with that, except to wonder how you go about getting it. Where? How? And when do you know you have got it? Howard Jacobson

Where - Light of Truth
How - Yoga
When you know you've got it is when you are completely free of doubts, emotion or sentiment, boredom, free of being offended or insulted, when you free from discomfort of any kind (stress, fatigue, frustration, jealousy, vanity, covetousness, hot or cold, obesity, etc.), disease and hunger. If you are unhappy with the way you look (dress, complexion, physical or mental stature or features, etc.) you are not free, attachment to mundane is not freedom, discontentment of any kind is not freedom, and above all if you are not free from any of these there can be no freedom (heaven) after this life. If one or more is your present state know that what you believe in is not true.
In truth, you have to be absolutely free in this life to be totally free in the next. So don't worry about being free for now, just work up the desire to know the only truth that can eventually set you free, for only when you are free you are free to free others.

Keep in mind this will not happen overnight but over many many years depending on the effort you put in to your studies and practice.
