WOTMQ: RMPS Demons Epilogue

Comment was by Mrs.B on August 4, 2021 at 1:25pm

It's insulting.

Comment was by Stephen Brodie on August 4, 2021 at 11:08am

"I love the poorly educated." Probably one of the most heinous remarks I've ever heard from a politician. 

Comment was by Loren Miller on August 4, 2021 at 6:33am

Let's be real here. For the most part, "Godly Wisdom" = BULLSHIT, plain and simple. Doesn't matter whether the topic is the bible, the quran or whatever. It's all the product of human imagination and a desire to manipulate and control others, and the less aware and educated someone is, the more those in authority like it. Of course, they don't like "worldly wisdom," which at least SHOULD include critical thinking and skepticism, because THAT is what empowers us to see through their "Godly Wisdom!"

Comment was by Onyango Makagutu on August 4, 2021 at 5:40am

Usually whenever i see someone talk of worldly and godly wisdom i wonder how do they access the second one? All their aspirations, dreams, ideas, as Sagan said in Blue Dot, happen here. They can't escape it.

Comment was by Grinning Cat on August 4, 2021 at 1:25am

Those scare quotes around "educated" made me think how some/many religions (and other groups!) repackage or reframe things to deny reality.

For example, they might distinguish between "worldly wisdom", which is a trick of the devil and to be avoided, no matter that following it makes many people successful, and "godly wisdom", which is to be pursued even if it turns people's lives to shit. (It also helps to have an afterlife where everything will be made right, so nothing that happens in this life really counts.)

The sign also brought to mind Donald Trump's statement, after winning a primary election in 2016: "I love the poorly educated."

(BTW, evangelicals supporting Trump actually made perfect sense: evangelicals center their lives around obeying God, and Trump thinks he is God. :)

A half-hour well spent (just listening works too):

"Bending Truth" -- knowing how we can all be manipulated makes us that much less likely to be manipulated by groups creating and exploiting cognitive dissonance.

Yeah, & they don't want that to happen.

Ain't that the truth.
