There is anothe…

There is another form of temptation, even more fraught with danger. This is the disease of curiosity… It is this which drives us to try and discover the secrets of nature, those secrets which are beyond our understanding, which can avail us nothing and which man should not wish to learn.
St. Augustine

No, don’t look behind that curtain! It is all beyond your understanding and you’ll gain nothing by it! Just stay ignorant and listen to the priest…

One response to “There is anothe…”

  1. Tech Savvy says :

    To destroy a child, destroy his curiosity.

    Cults have found that one of the best ways to destroy curiosity is to declare, “We are family!”.

    That way, those who buy into “We are family!” are duped to trust everyone in the cult, particularly the paternalistic leaders who rely on their AUTHORITY, will stem not just their curiosity, but the skepticism which follows the satisfying that curiosity.

    As G’kar said, “Just remember, on Babylon 5, no one is exactly who they seem”.

    To which I would add, “just remember, when you are in a cult, nothing is exactly as it seems”.

    To which I add, “Trust no one, since the truth isn’t out there in the cult”.

    We are family!

    Which means everything we get is free and we don’t have to pay (especially, we don’t have to pay 10% of our income to them!); if they want money, they need to get a day job and earn their way in the world.

    We don’t pay to get abused.
