Well now, that’s a question.
I am worried when a scientist tells me that the world is warming and it’s my fault and we are all doomed. I am also worried when another scientist claims that nuclear power is safe. I am worried when a politician tells me that he will scrap tuition fees and utterly incredulous when I am assured that… well the list goes on and on and on.
I think it’s safe to say that I don’t believe anything or anyone, and here is the reason. We all have our own agenda and can convince ourselves of anything that suits us at the time. Therefore I can’t even be sure that this is true or just something that is convenient for me to convince myself of.
This kind of argument is what prompted me to call my blog Pea Soup and Pork Pies.
Be afraid, be very afraid of anyone who claims to believe in anything at all. What’s more, the more fervently they claim to believe, the more worried I get.
PS I don’t believe a word of what I just wrote.
PPS And don’t bother commenting. I won’t believe that either.
