[video] Willful Ignorance: Actively Resisting the Truth & Truth-tellers

Transcribed by Jeff Fenske from the video, below.

The Problem

“The truth is not comfortable,
and never will be.

We choose our own comfortable doctrine,
and build our doctrines and belief around that foundation. …

When an opposing view is presented,
we resist it without giving it much thought.”

“We’ve become illiterate financially, historically, morally, spiritually, etc.,
and will chastise or harm the person who challenges us to think.”

“We argue and sometimes fight
when our belief system is challenged
.”

The Solution

True attainment of knowledge, wisdom and truth is to:
weigh
the evidence,
then form an opinion,
leaving opportunities for additional learning in the future.”
