Philosopher. Someone who challenges what they are told. Someone who uses their ability to reason for the purpose of thinking through information and coming to their own intellectual conclusions. So many people don’t bother. They don’t know they need to. You can’t know that what you know is wrong if you don’t know it’s wrong to look and see that something else is right.
Did you know that it takes thunder 5 seconds to travel a mile? So when you see the lightning, and count to 5, then hear thunder…the lightning is really only a mile away. Not 5 like your mother told you.
There’s so much you really can’t trust. It’s kind of crazy, isn’t it?
