GREATEST ENEMY OF TRUTH
(5-6-08 by Carl A. Patton)
As we allude to things of the unknown we look at heuristic. Here we find a hypothesis that serves as a guide. It also gives direction in solving a problem but is not considered proven. Does a heuristic approach seek to find out or discover? Will this approach stimulate students and thinkers to search for further answers for themselves? But can you bow to the world and find these answers?
What can we prove about Truth? Does it depend on who is seeking Truth? Meanwhile that great genius of physics Albert Einstein said:
“Blind respect for authority is the greatest enemy of Truth.”
Now brethren let us think? Can we find other answers for anything that poses questions for society? Can we clearly see the end of this question? What authority?
I passed interspersed the shadows and
cob-webs of your mind. For I knew
the standing predator. As an
antagonist he came cloaked in
adversary rags and reeked of a stale
odor that laughed at things not
funny as he tried to hide Truth.
Meanwhile I saw authority in humankind
that told exaggerated tales of the world
as many bowed to kings, queens and
the money barons. There was/is also many
other vices as all things thought to be
good would one day be bad.
Never say never as to order and
the campaign against confusion.
God did not order confusion
however man knew nothing of
the infinite as he felt puffed up
in his definable wisdom that was
So the wise logically and without
hesitation went outside the limits.
They saw this as the avenue to
creative thinking as no great thinker
could stay within the box.
Authority figures held their heads
not in shame as they believed they
held the keys to knowledge and
their Truth was known, as the unknown
to them was a lie, many slept with the
During these times there came the
independent thinker who loved Truth.
He also loved God as he knew more
than once that God was at the center
of Truth. Many of the early great
philosophers of the west as they
were also from the east also knew that
God was the primary figure in Truth.
Meanwhile we look back and see that
they toyed and dallied with a “Methodology
For Obtaining Truth” which goes through
God. Carelessly the enemy of Truth believed
that only what they can see is Truth.
I hear and feel the truth seekers in the
field and in the classroom. He looked
with his eyes as did the slanderer but
the vilifier saw little although he thought
he saw much. But the Truth-seeker saw even
with his heart. Thus he saw much and to some
The box as it was noted, closed tightly
around the dogmatic authoritarians thinking-less.
He saw no extenuating circumstances.
He ceased to think as rote memory and
general human behavior often controlled
his every action.
All the paintings he saw and painted
were done in dull abstract colors and
drawings, as no life came upon those
that knew none of the colors of the
rainbow. In God’s house the majority
did not always rule.
The box people often had no box cutters
as they stood firm against new ideas.
The heuristic people were heretics? They,
the box-headed people banished all new thought
and Truth was no priority. Censorship became a
part of the indigenous box people as they stayed
John just looked at the box. The squares were the
sullen, dull and mis-directed people. However many
were lazy and content with all things that their supreme
power told them. Who told them what?
His mind carried hair, a hat and
ears that seem to hold empty space
in-between. John frowned as he
knew that the head was not a
muscle but it still needed cultivation.
The box cutters now came up like a
snakes head, spitting censuring venom and trying
to cut the legs of the Truth-seekers.
They also threw rocks at his head, however
he stayed bowed in prayer and the rocks
landed low and never high. Truth rested
beyond the clouds, although right before
our very eyes.
