Seeking The Truth

One of my blogging buddies, Faye, aka The Chicken Grandma sent me this quote:

“The beginning of wisdom is found in doubting; by doubting we come to the question, and by seeking we may come upon the truth.”

-Pierre Abelard

Faye shares  great stories from America’s heartland where she and her husband are real farmers in Iowa. Do yourself a favor. . . visit and follow her blog.

Questioning and doubting what is going on these days does not make you “anti” anything. Nor does it make you a conspiracy theorist. Actually, questioning is and should be, the place of reason. The fact that questioning has become taboo, should, in fact, send a chill up everyone’s spine.

If I do not agree with you, it does not mean I hate you. It means I disagree with you.  Please do not try to convince me that you are a better/smarter person than I am because you see things differently than I do.

If my side reports  something happened and your side does not, please do not assume that my side is lying and vice versa. If one thing is obvious to me it is that everyone has a horse in the race and the truth isn’t always found on the back of the horse that crosses the finish line first.

Remember, regardless of what team you play for, a lie does not become the truth just because it is accepted by a majority.
