Of all things Earthly, what do we really know? No; I did not say, “What are we ALLOWED to know”, or “What are we “TAUGHT.” Who are we? Humans, we call ourselves. What do we know? Collectively? Well, I have just been informed that all is no longer George Bush’s fault. It is Big Bad Don’s fault. I knew that.
So here we are flying along our merry way through time and space at breakneck speeds on our plate. Yes; sigh, I have been corrected that we are on a dish, (Petri’?) not a cursed globe, after all! But in the lecture on the obviosity of this fact, there is a deathly silence about the four Elephants or even the great Turtle. I guess the Elephants are deleted because they might be misconstrued as icky Republicans; but I digress. So I asked the learned Teacher, who is feeding the Elephants? And doth not their flatuence add to Global Warming? I was told that I was disrupting the Class and sent to the Magistrate, who immediately sentenced me to be hung by the neck until I cheered up!
As I work my way through this flat life, (Damn that Mercator) It occurs to me that when one asks the wrong questions; ie. a question not approved by the Purveyors of Knowledge, or they who think they know; in any of the genres’ of academia, you are scorned. Not only in religion and politics; but in the provable sciences also! Yes, they are but more religions wanting you to believe in their dogmas; which must be fed; through grants by the banks, filtered through Government schools, so they too must conform (See my post on the Einstellung). I flatly and politely, refuse to believe! What thinkest thou?
