Truth Must Be Repeated

May 28, 2011
By Dan McLaughlin , The Post-Journal

Johann von Goethe, famed writer and scholar from two centuries ago, said that "Truth must be repeated again and again, because error is constantly being preached round about us." That certainly applies to our time. We are bombarded with propositions proven to be false time and again. People give undeserved reverence to politicians and influential figures whose self-serving opinions hurt more than they help. All knowledge is not truth, and even the brightest scientists, professors, physicians, and researches often give themselves credit for knowing much more than they actually do. Their research and pronouncements are often guided by politics rather than a quest for truth, reinforcing the presuppositions of the consensus.
