I am not saying that you should not challenge previous notions (every true Scientist does). I am just saying to know what you are challenging. NO, WE DON'T BELIEVE IN RELIGION, NOR TAKING THINGS ON FACE VALUE, BUT A RITUAL IS SOMETHING YOU DO REPEATINGLY BECAUSE IT BRINGS ABOUT THE PROPER RESULT WHEN YOU DO IT--LIKE STUDYING BEFORE YOU TAKE A TEST-- for example. You just don't get rid of a phrase because your parents or an older God/ Earth used it or you think it is "Old School" because it came from the past: Know what it means and if you don't think it's true, then put it and your own theories to the test-- but be real with yourself: If you cannot produce better results, why change it? And if you don't like the effects, then don't produce the cause. Meaning: cut out that behavior. Earthquakes is caused by the son of man experimenting with high explosives. In fact all that above is caused by the Son of Man [caused by what you do] (8/1-40).
