Reality: A Thought

One who possesses the truth should have nothing to fear from critical investigation.

If a person's beliefs are based on reality, there should be no need to indoctrinate or shield their children from other points of view because the truth will make itself apparent upon investigation.

Doubt should not be regarded as sinful, for doubt stifled by simple facts only leads to more firm belief.

Doubt that is fueled by simple facts protects us from error and gullibility.

The ability to explore and reason is the only truly great faculty we have. Why not use it?

If the map and the ground disagree, the map is wrong. Wouldn't a more accurate map serve us better?

Shouldn't we say the same about a more accurate perception of reality?
