Consensus Opinion[edit]

"Your beliefs ... are merely a collective set of agreements between people. If they are based upon false assumptions, then everyone is agreeing upon something that is inherently untrue and inaccurate."[1]

Archaic Notions Based on Earth-centric Cosmology[edit]

Material existence on Earth is dross, the cosmos is heaven
To escape the bonds of Earth is to be free
Human supremacy, the crown of creation
Humans are God's favorite, special and unique
Divine providence ever constant, never failing, always sufficient
The template of conflict and war as normative throughout the universe
"To think that you would be attacked is wrong, and to think that because you have not been attacked that the forces that are here are beneficial is wrong. Both are based upon false assumptions. Therefore, the conclusions are incorrect." [2]
High spiritual intelligence accompanies strong technological capability
"Given the unfounded belief in technology as the source of human salvation, many people think, well, more technology is more salvation. And they think that technologically advanced races have evolved beyond being self-seeking and contentious and devious. They think that technologically advanced races do not have conflict and that these races have outgrown the chronic problems that humanity still faces. What a ridiculous assumption! You have technology today that your forefathers a hundred years ago could not even imagine. And yet have you overcome these problems yourselves?" [3]
