My Favorite Words: Accurate & Knowledge

Even scientists lie. Look at the fraud perpetrated in the fake evolution evidence of the so-called "Piltdown Man." It turned out to be a complete fake.

Thanks to tfockler60, I am rethinking the subject of a favorite word(s).  He brought up a great point that in my hazy mind so early in the morning, I hadn't considered.   I took another look, and have new insight, thanks to tfockler. Actually, even though I seldom use these two words in my writing, they affect everything I write, except for the possible exclusion of creative (fictional) writing.

As writers, we use so many words, we may not think we have any favorite word, or words. When I got to thinking, I realize that even though I may not actually write using these words, they affect everything I write, from my blogs about pet rescue, to my blog on Pot Belly Pigs, and everything I write on, as well. Not all knowledge is accurate. Just because a person is sincere, doesn't mean their knowledge is accurate, does it? They can also be sincerely wrong.

Firstly, I try to always have "accurate knowledge" regarding the subjects about which I write. I am most definitely passionate about every blog site I write, as they are nearly about things I feel very strongly about, such as the ones I referred to above. Even one site I have about good places to eat in my local area as well is controlled by my desire to provide correct/accurate information to prospective diners. I make sure that all photos of food on that site were personally taken by me, of food actually prepared and served there, and aren't "stock photos" that I got someplace else.

There is one more scripture that is very important to me, that I would like to quote. It is found at Romans 12: 2, and states the following advice: "And quit being fashioned after this system of things, but be transformed by making your mind over, that you may prove to yourselves the good and acceptable and perfect will of God."

One must search in order to find. It doesn't happen by osmosis, we must seek in order to find, and only by prayer and asking for God to bestow upon us his holy spirit, to help us in our search, will we be able to find the answers we are looking for.

When I write about my religious beliefs, those posts are also based on studying the scriptures for some 60 plus years, and continuing to delve deeply into all the Bible. After all, according to many scriptures in the Bible, such as 2 Timothy 3:16, 17 "All scripture is inspired of God, and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man (or woman) of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work."

Thanks, tfockler60 for the heads-up.

Back to things we take for granted at time, that turns out to be either in error, or an out and out lie.

All that glitters isn't gold. Just because something sounds good, doesn't make it true. How many falsehoods have you heard in politics, in advertising, and even on food labels? A little food for thought? accuracy and honesty are now considered for fools, used by ignorant people who don't accept the latest and greatest, deception, outright lies, and misleading information is bandied about in abundance in today's society. Weeding though all erroneous messages, and outright lies, isn't always easy, even for the educated and informed.
