Education of the Mind Trumps Religion


The more we train our minds to THINK, the better we evolve, the better we live.

People who are reluctant to educate themselves in this way tend to just follow orders and obey without questioning. Sad thing to see, the “robotic” human mind that is a reality in our world.

Now, you might think that I’m referring to university studies, PhD’s, MD’s…etc. No no, unfortunately getting a high degree diploma doesn’t guarantee that the student will become a thinker. An independent thinker.

I know of many medical doctors who are profoundly religious, some of them are evangelical, singing in tongues, even practicing exorcisms and all that “crapola” . And yes, they are real medical doctors, seriously! To me, this is a crime against the mind.

Educating ourselves involves reading many topics, have intense curiosity for science, philosophy, gardening, farming, cooking, literature, history, the arts, agriculture…learning about  life for god sake!

Being away from religion doesn’t mean to be atheist. And many of religious people are far far from being sincere theists. And you can quote me on this!

  1. I have always been a big believer in cognitive thinking skills because you need to comprehend, process, remember, and apply what you learn. In other words, learn something and then think for yourself after analysis of the info. This does not negate the spiritual side of myself because I still apply cognitive skills to my spirituality.

  2. Excellent! I’ve always searched for the truth, validating that truth along the way, but at the same time allowing myself to take a few truths on faith. Such a statement might sound strange, but it’s really not that complicated. The key word here is discernment. It can’t be learned or gifted [maybe gifted?]. Similar to the traits of The Empath, one must be born with a discerning ability, and there are many different types of discernment.

    Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked. I really enjoyed this piece.

    Thank You, Joseph

  3. Hi Martha. Thanks for the piece. I love the sentiment. Rational cognitive thought coupled with compassion and humility is without doubt our greatest achievement as a species. I cannot however accept the premise of an acceptance of religion based on logic or how logical thought can strengthen religion when it is the very tool we use to disprove religion.

    1. “an acceptance of religion based on logic or how logical thought can strengthen religion when it is the very tool we use to disprove religion.” —- Absolutely. Using logic one can disprove religion and the existence of a god and unicorns. The hoping of an afterlife sometimes comes during the grieving process, when my logical thought tells me that this is it but the pain of losing someone still in my mind,
      Thank you for your compliments, Robert. I love to talk to people like you, reasonable, kind, educated.
      It is important to keep talking about these topics, discuss them, reason and come to the acceptance that using logic makes living better and more intensely, every moment of our lives, every second of it,
