Know The Truth

truth-seeker“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

As you may already be aware, I am not a big advocate of quoting scripture despite my own Christian beliefs. I have witnessed so many deliberate distortions of the bible’s core truths, especially by dogmatic Christians, that I find myself reluctant to provide such quotes.  John 8:32 is one of the most profound messages in the New Testament however and I firmly believe that the open-minded search for truth is an obligation that we all have, independent of our spiritual upbringing.

At the core of every Religion (including the non-theistic faiths and Scientism)  is man’s desire to know the truth. So often though we get part way there and then get locked into a one-way thinking that stops any forward motion in this search.  Our religious/scientific leaders tell us that such-and-such is fact and we blindly agree with these authority figures. The simple reality is that no one knows the complete truth about much of anything, (especially regarding man’s origins) and we should take any and all ideas and theories with a huge grain of salt as they are presented to us.  Yes there is a truth out there, but make sure that you are not blindly following someone else’s view of it (even mine) and that you are making your own clear-headed decisions regarding its pursuit.  Continue reading

Another High Priest of Scientism

There-is-no-god

by Kevin O. Hunking

At the risk of turning this blog into an anti-Scientism soapbox, I feel that I must speak out against this growing tide of irrational thought being put forward as Science.

I am a true lover of pure science and follow it quite closely.  Science should be an absolute search for truth, with slogans, dogmas and staggering egos being left aside.  Unfortunately we still have the kind of nonsense floating around that is displayed by one of Scientism’s High Priests Penn Jillette, in the quote shown here.

And Yet Another Bit of Scientism “Logic”

by Kevin O. Hunking

darwinJust to set the record straight, here is the definition of Scientism that I use;

Scientism is belief in the universal applicability of the scientific method and approach, and the view that empirical science constitutes the most “authoritative” worldview or the most valuable part of human learning – to the exclusion of other viewpoints.

Note the last few words of this definition “to the exclusion of other viewpoints” as we are now beginning to see just how widespread this new religion has become. Continue reading

Scientism’s Empty Arguments

“So if someone asks, ‘Do you believe in evolution,’ they are framing it wrong. That’s like asking, ‘Do you believe in blue?’ Continue reading

Truth Seeker? I Guess Not.

Well I guess it was inevitable.  The last remaining spokesman of the New Atheist traveling roadshow has fallen. I used to hold Neil deGrasse Tyson in high regard and believed that he was actually a “truth seeker” at heart. Unfortunately he has made another one of the totally empty statements that plague the Scientism movement now. Here is his quote: Continue reading

Spiritual Core Theory: Core Identity Part III

by Kevin O. Hunking

intuition“We dance round in a ring and suppose.  But the secret sits in the center and knows.”

This quote by the world famous poet Robert Frost, sums up the truth behind communication with your higher self via your intuitive voice within.  Not to be confused with “The Secret” as it relates to the Law of Attraction and the book by Rhonda Byrne, the Secret that I am referring to here is one of your Core Identity’s most valuable assets, your intuition and its ability to function as the ultimate, unflinching teller of the truth.

Spiritual Core Theory: Core Identity Part II

by Kevin O. Hunking

spiritflow“How would you like every moment of every day to feel like one miracle happening after another? How would you like to accomplish your goals and realize your dreams without undue struggle or strain?”

This opening paragraph is taken from an article written by author Steven Lane Taylor and is certainly an attention grabber. Who wouldn’t want to feel like that, and more importantly live like that?  Another definition of this state is brought to us by Deepak Chopra who describes the state as “the experience in which our needs are easily met and our dreams spontaneously fulfilled.”

Being in this state of total fulfillment goes by a lot of different names such as “Divine Flow”, “Spiritual Flow”, being in “The Zone”, “Peak Experience” and on the more mystical level “Nirvana”, but each of these labels points to the same experience; the effortless fulfillment of our true heart’s desire.  The state is characterized by an expanded sense of well-being, relaxed focus and a general feeling of being more alive.
