Our awareness of the world we live in determines us to try and find explanations for everything we see. We’ve had this inclination since the dawn of humankind and it’s an important aspect of our rationality.
While our ancestors tended to ascribe certain events to the will of the gods or other supernatural beings, our acquired understanding of the forces of nature and psyche makes us seek explanations of the scientific kind.
It’s a well known fact that religion had the first and last word for a long time. It dictated the direction and permission of research for as long as it’s been around. People we now look up to have been burned at the stake for not abandoning their attachment to new-found truths. We’re not trying to undermine the role it played in developing our current world, we’re merely stating the facts.
History has shown us time and again that there’s always room for groundbreaking discoveries and that at any given moment human perception is subject to change.
What was widely regarded as sorcery just a few hundred years ago ( or today in some parts of the world) is now scientific fact. This goes to show that the complexity and truthfulness of our answers only go as far as we’re willing to let them go.
It’s only when sufficient time passes and humanity gains insight that old theories are classified as incomplete, unsatisfactory or obsolete. People that were considered mad by their contemporary peers are then acquitted and reclassified as visionaries. This phenomenon is not the exception, it’s the rule. It seems the only way humanity grows is in leaps and bounds.
On the other hand, the alternative oftentimes leads people into questioning everything and accepting only the most far-fetched explanation. Left unchecked, extremism grows and the extremities of the spectrum aren’t always the best places to be in.
Middle grounds then?
But that just leaves us questioning our own common sense and its position in relation to everything else. The healthy way of going about this process is to take into consideration as much as we possibly can, to expand our horizons to the maximum extent we’re comfortable with.
We’re lucky to live in a time when information is at our fingertips but as always, a coin has two sides. The very nature of information leaves it subject to adulteration and it’s up to every one of us to sift through what we have and decide whether to accept it as it is or further distill it until we’re happy with what remains on the bottom of the flask.
If our philosophy is different from yours, we’re sorry to have wasted your time and wish you the best in your endeavors.
If you decide to stay, we have a few commitments we’d like to make.
First of all, we’re well aware of the huge number of websites casually throwing around conspiracy theories based on nothing more than a few edited videos or doctored photos. We’ll strive to avoid this reckless behavior and provide quality content, the kind that leads people into questioning their previous beliefs.
Even outlandish theories have a grain of truth and that’s what we’re after. We’ll be happy to provide that grain of truth along with our two cents rather than pursue your attention with sensational headlines shaking like elephants on skinny legs.
Your input is valuable to us so feel free to drop us a line anytime. Should we be wrong about something, we’ll be happy to stand corrected. As we said, we all need to expand our horizons.
They say that loose lips sink ships. We say that locked ones never let them sail.
