The TRUTH…!

Filed under: Just Stuff — theotheri @ 1:58 pm

For some reason, I seem to have been inundated of late by headlines and articles that begin with big letters promising me THE TRUTH ABOUT…!

The truths being announced range from revelations about the banks, medicine, food, fracking, politicians, global warming, the economy, health, dieting or even the creation of the universe.

Sometimes these revelations are accompanied by requests for money for the full story.  But whether or not money is involved, the implication is always that up until now we have been lied to.  What’s disturbing is that the frequency of these Truthful Announcements suggests that an awful lot of people believe that they are being lied to an awful lot but are willing to believe that at last, someone has arrived who is going to tell it straight.

Doubter that I am, promising me the Truth about important and complex processes – like the economy or health or the environment – sounds like a dead give-away that the Truth in question is a fraud.  Anybody who thinks they have all the right answers on any of these subjects hasn’t examined the evidence.

The TRUTH is not so easily found.

    • Thank you for the learning experience! I had to look Fox Mulder up on Wikipedia. Obviously, one could not call my education “well-rounded.” Someday in another world perhaps…?
