How Human Beings Deny the Truth
Taken from Truthism.com
Human beings on Earth like to blow off the truth by claiming that it is simply nonsense, calling it, for example, “funny,” “hilarious,” or “entertaining.” In addition, they automatically disregard the truth messenger as being a “standard-issue schizophrenic who is obviously out of touch with reality.” People desperately try to paint truth messengers as being non-lucid, mentally unstable, illogical, and so self-absorbed that they can’t see things for what they really are. This is a very convenient way to quickly discard the truth and go on with one’s life.
Furthermore, when people come upon new information such as this, they erroneously assume that they have some sort of intellectual high ground over it. They start with the assumption that their belief system is correct, and, for whatever reason, vehemently refuse to acknowledge the possibility that they may have actually been deceived all along by their belief system. And thus, when confronted with counter-evidence, they automatically reject it.
As a matter of fact, human beings are actually pompous enough to think that their status quo worldview is more rational than the truth. They neglect to factor the concept of intentional deception into their logical thought process, and thus fail to realize that the only reason why their worldview seems “rational” is because it is actually composed of a plethora of lies and distortions. So, in one of the greatest ironies ever, human beings think the lies that they are fed are reality, and that the truth, on the other hand, is crazy, unrealistic, and bizarre.
It is truly amazing how people are able to adopt one of Earth’s belief systems (whether it be a specific religion or atheism), walk through the proverbial door of enlightenment (or so they think), shut the door behind them, and then never look back. Worse yet, they are actually proud not to look back–proud of their own stubbornness.
Once human beings are exposed to the truth, their decision to ridicule it manifests so quickly, one could mistakenly think that human beings are actually robots that were programmed to do so. Thus, if people really want to point the finger at someone who does not engage in serious critical thinking, they should go to the nearest mirror and point at themselves (rather than trying to point the finger at the truth messenger).
“There is far more to this world than taught in our schools, shown in the media, or proclaimed by the church and state. Most of mankind lives in a hypnotic trance, taking to be reality what is instead a twisted simulacrum of reality, a collective dream in which values are inverted, lies are taken as truth, and tyranny is accepted as security. They enjoy their ignorance and cling tightly to the misery that gives them identity” (Thomas Cox, montalk.net).
