John 8:32

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

Starting the year with this resolution, formulated for me by Annie Reneau.

A belief, opinion, or viewpoint based on verifiably false claims is not worth my consideration. Period. Refusing to entertain them doesn’t make a person intolerant, it makes them reasonable and intelligent. Tolerating lies is ridiculous and illogical. And if your opinion is based on lies, it is invalid and it should be called out as such.

A viewpoint based on verifiably false claims is not worth my consideration.  Period.”
Especially when that opinion causes or permits harm to others.
With so many opportunities to learn the facts, crosscheck and verify them from independent and expert sources, it takes a particular combination of stupid and cognitive dissonance to continue believing bullshit.

Even an atheist can quote the book.

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.

  1. In principle of course one has to agree, but what about my foibles and idiosyncrasies. Will you forgive them? If you don’t wont that make you a rather difficult person to live with. We all need our white lies, inconsistencies and irregularities to get through life, it would be hard to get through the day without them. Perfect people can be hard to like but are thankfully rare.

    1. Good point Bob. We all have our foibles. I would challenge what I see as illogical or unreasonable propositions with a vigour directly in proportion to the potential of that opinion to cause or permit harm to others.
