NEW - ADVICE TO LIVE BY (and examples to illustrate the points)

ADVICE TO LIVE BY (and examples to illustrate the points):

#1 - Do NOT believe in anything simply because you have heard it...
(Our leaders once assured us the world was flat and you could fall off the edges).

#2 - Do NOT believe in traditions just because they have been handed down for many generations..
(It was an ancient tradition for rich landowners in the UK to have the 'right' to have sex FIRST with any wife of any poor man living on his lands, the husband had to be content to have 'seconds' on his own wedding night).

#3 - Do NOT believe in anything because it is spoken and rumored by many (most humans tell their children that to become a self-employed farmer and grow food that humans actually NEED to live - is a 'waste of education'....they glorify you being a mere worker behind a desk for someone else all your life instead).


#4 - Do NOT believe in anything just because you see it written in your 'Holy Books'...
(In the Old Testament of the Bible you can find 'righteous' punishments such as stoning your own child to death for being disobedient to his/her parents Deuteronomy 21:18-21...and in the New Testament you can find 'righteous' sanction for slavery that even tells slaves that 'God wants them to be obedient and accept their beatings respectfully' Ephesians 6:5).


#5 - Do NOT believe in anything merely because your teacher or elder told you so.. (sometimes a 'teacher' can be even more ignorant of facts than you - I was told at school that water is a dead substance - so I argued how can the source of ALL life be something dead?, and many an elder has told a minor - that they subsequently sexually molested - 'what I am doing to you is not bad - but just don't tell anyone - it's our little secret').


ONLY AFTER OBSERVATION AND ANALYSIS, WHEN YOU FIND THAT SOMETHING AGREES WITH REASON - AND IS CONDUCIVE TO THE GOOD AND BENEFIT OF ONE AND ALL - ONLY THEN SHOULD YOU ACCEPT IT AND LIVE UP TO IT.
