A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.
I love the internet. I love instant news and being able to filter out everything that I don’t care to watch on TV news. Part of the beauty of the internet is that it places news in the hands of the masses and anyone with an opinion or idea can discuss it on their blog or website.
The downside is that there is no way to verify anything that is said. The media itself has it’s own biases but we tend to know that certain commentators are liberal or conservative. With anonymous people we have no clue what their bias is or even if what they say is the truth at all.
We have to take everything we hear with a grain of salt. If miracle weight loss really worked, no one would be overweight. If you could easily make thousands from home, everyone would be rich.
We must be wise when it comes to what we hear. There are many things that clamor for our attention these days. Not only do we want to keep from appearing foolish we don’t even want to waste our time on half-truths and lies. If it sounds too good to be true use great caution when determining if you believe it or not.
