If as a child you were taught for years, until you were an adult to believe a certain way about certain things, then later in life your mind becomes a wall and a barrier that cannot receive alternative ideas to what you have thought for years to be true (for most people).
For example suppose that you were taught by your parents, your school teachers and through the "news" media and through movies that God spoke to a man long ago, by the name of Santa Claus and that this Santa Claus said that God told him 700 rules that humans are to live by. What if millions of people all around you believed the same way? How do you overcome this myth, which has been pounded into your mind for thousands of times over the years?
What if you were schooled to believe all your life anything a certain way, such as belief that the Bible is the infallible and inerrant word of God? Others have been taught that their "Holy" books are inspired by God and they have been schooled to believe that their books are true, even though their books differ with yours.
You read in the New Testament that "all scripture is given by inspiration of God", but how did the person who said that, thought that or penned that, know that? Had you been standing there by the source that penned that and asked them what "right" they had to make such a claim, would that person have been embarrassed because he knew it was not true?
When certain men long ago said "God commanded", how would they know that, unless of course God literally appeared to such persons and spoke with them? Some may claim that God actually did speak to them, but since God does not speak with anyone today in a verbal since, why should
we believe that God ever spoke with anyone throughout all human history? And why should we believe them?
The fact is that human beings are programmed and indoctrinated to believe things, for which they have no real clue as to its truthfulness or validity. People who hear something through the lying "news" media or movie industry thousands of times, have been so inundated with that information, that it becomes nearly impossible for people to comprehend that anything contrary could be true, even though what they have believed to be true may not be true at all.
It actually is a long process to unwind false information and false knowledge that has been deeply embedded into the human mind. Humans have been used and abused since the beginning of time, by other humans whose motives in life are less than altruistic.
How often I have heard people recoil at the idea of "conspiracies", as if they admit they believe in a conspiracy, they will be looked upon as a kook. Well, for Christians if the Devil comes as an angel of light, does that not tell you that Satan IS a liar and a deceiver? What is a conspiracy other than deception? Of course you believe in conspiracies and if you don't then you don't believe there is a
devil, provided you are a Christian.
You know why people are skittish about admitting to belief in conspiracies? Simply, because the "news" media makes you think you are an idiot if you believe in alternatives to the status quo. They want the public to believe what they tell the public and without questioning. You are far better off to never trust the "news" media for anything and dig for truth and answers for yourself. In fact take your television to the landfill if you want some peace of mind.
Had you lived on another planet and never been exposed to all the information that has been funneled into your mind for a lifetime, you would most likely not believe anything that earthlings believe. If you were God and you could witness everything on planet earth, understand all languages and have the ability to be behind closed doors and see how humans plot and scheme, lie and cheat and deceive, then you would know the truth and not be a party to an indoctrinated mind because of the lying "news" media or religious liars.
Sad to say but adult human beings are rendered childish in their knowledge and thinking abilities, because of the relentless programming into their minds by innumerable sources. Ever wonder why the public is bombarded and assaulted with 24/7 advertising? Virtually everyone wants you to believe something is true or good or you can't live without it and why? :-) $Money?
One of the main and major reasons why so many people are bankrupt in knowledge about so many issues, is the fact that they DO NOT READ and if they read, they only read what they may agree with or what agrees with their pre-programmed mind conditioning. Want a clue to learning? Read from sources that challenge.
Want the truth about "Biblical" archaeology? Then read books or articles from sources that challenge the status quo and not just from sources that have hidden or ulterior motives to make you believe the bible can be proved by archaeology. It can not! And you will learn that Ron Wyatt an amateur archaeologist supposedly discovered more "biblical" truths through archaeology than all others for hundreds of years. He did not.
No matter the subject, read from sources that challenge and you will learn how the bible really came into being and you will learn the truth about many other types of subjects.
The best way to penetrate the indoctrinated mind is to challenge people to prove their own beliefs and stop listening to and reading only what agrees with their preset beliefs.
Unfortunately most people are willing to live in the bliss of ignorance, because they don't want to spend the time to learn, they just want to be told by some preacher what to believe, even though the preacher himself knows next to nothing. And they want to be told by the "news" media, the government or the movie industry what to believe, as if these primarily atheistic sources tell you truth.
