Not Convinced?

Slow Dance – Poem

Slow Dance

by David L. Weatherford

Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

Do you run through each day on the fly
When you ask “How are you?” do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed
With the next hundred chores running through your head?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow
And in your haste, not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die
‘Cause you never had time to call and say “Hi”?

You’d better slow down
Don’t dance so fast
Time is short
The music won’t last

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift….
Thrown away…

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower
Hear the music
Before the song is over.

Who to believe

With so many information sources today, sometimes its hard to figure out who to believe.

Have people actually landed on the moon? Have you really seen a rocket head out into space? What about earth being flat, have you been up in a plane way up high to see the curvature of the earth?

Our primer for thought is simple.
Believe yourself first. You are the questioning mind. Doubts are the pathway to discovery. Answer each doubt with logic, and the truth will unveil itself.

The quest to verify a claim.
Ask around or reference many different sources who researched the same conclusion. Are they from different beliefs or school of thought? Was a reproducible method of discovery used as a path to uncover the truth? If you had a billion dollars will you be able to recreate and verify this truth?

If life affords you, talk to the people who made the discovery or verified it. If you can do the verification for yourself, do it.

Many times there is overwhelming evidence that something is true. There are thousands of people who can attest it to be true, and thousands more who can repeat the verification with the same conclusion.

Key driver, is that you employ logic, and use no “beliefs” as foundations to discover the truth.

Ready to test yourself?
Here is an assignment: Are ghosts real? (ps. I am still researching, although I have yet to personally experience them. Conclusions will be published one day. Where things stand today: They are tricks of the mind to stimuli. I am looking for a verifiable ghost that everyone can experience and study.)

Virtual Certainty Around Us

There are over 1200 religions on this planet… who is right? You?

Religions today have evolved over over time…have these religions arrived at their final perspective today?

What makes your version of that religion the final perspective of that doctrine?

Has the religion you are familiar with ever evolved since its inception? Do you think it will ever evolve again?

Earth is flat?
Earth is the center of the universe?
Is our solar system is the center of the universe?

The only certainty we have in life is science, death & uncertainty.
Our understanding of science, death & uncertainty is constantly improving.
