The change in routine with holiday joys resulted in the children disputing what day of the week it was. I was initially certain it was wednesday but my son’s certainty roused doubts, and I wondered if I had got it wrong? One thing was certain the day or date was not going to change whatever anyone chooses to believe.
It brought to mind the certainty of truth in the alleged “post truth” era. A dog will not change into a duck whatever anyone chooses to belief, regardless of the person’s qualification or reputation. A Professor may choose to profess lies for whatever reason, whoever swallows the deceit will suffer the detriment. The onus therefore lies on every individual to seek the truth and hold fast to it, whatever challenge may come.
Believing a sheep to be a lion because of some mass of muddy shaggy wool round its neck, will not make it safe to stay with it in a pen! It is a matter of time before disaster is likely to set in?? Always best to seek the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
