Experts

March 7, 2024

Experts on any subject should have already examined all the facts before they pontificate. When someone follows only one trail of evidence and pretends to know the whole case, their “conclusive evidence” will only be sketchy at best. Any scarcely qualified advocate for the defense will annihilate the prosecutor’s case.

Often I read essays by people bringing accusations against God, Jesus, the Bible, and Christianity, but no matter as to their logically presented facts, they have failed to examine all the evidence, and many of their facts are not facts at all!

Recently, I saw another trend unfold. This one particular essay was an obvious response to somebody somewhere about something. The essay’s purpose was apparently to counter that other essay with which he or she disagreed. The quantity of responses supporting the arguments was profound, while the written responses in support, not so much. The cheering squad was just cheering for cheering’s sake.

“Yeeeah! Go bury them bums!”

“Yeeeah! KIck ass, dude!”

The Peanut Gallery knew less about the subject than the author!

Strange… Maybe they were connecting the Q dots I’ve heard so much about… Or maybe it was a case of plumbing the depths of the Deep State through the secret window that appears open only to them…

For me, such arguments are a complete mystery, an unsolvable conundrum of controversy and debate which are beyond my abilities to resolve… a traffic jam drivers could sit in for hours — even days…

The purpose of this essay is that all people would be filled with a clear conscience and genuine belief that comes from a pure heart and a clear mind. But some people have missed the whole point. They have turned away from the genuine and spend their time in meaningless discussions. They want to be known as teachers, but they don’t know what they are talking about, even though they speak so confidently.*
