Why You Must Never Share Big Ideas with Small Minded People

Published

on

Have you ever wondered why people who hang out together have a similar thought pattern? This similarity in their way of thinking occurs because thoughts are a form of energy, and energy is infectious.

Therefore, when you share big ideas with a small-minded person, you’ll doubt them because this person will infect you with doubtful thoughts.

All of us have qualities such as fear, doubt, anxiety, and courage in us. These factors are mostly activated if you associate with people who intensify them. For instance, associating with brave people and big dreamers activates the confidence in you while hanging out with anxious people makes you an anxious individual. This effect that other people have on us explains why we are usually advised to share our ideas with big-minded people as they’ll reinforce the boldness in us.

Have you ever doubted a big idea after sharing it with a small-minded person? How did you feel after sharing your idea? It’s obvious you felt discouraged. Imagine telling such people your ideas every day. There are high chances they’ll reinforce the doubt in you and make you give up.

Therefore, the main reason we are told to keep our ideas to ourselves is that a large percentage of people don’t believe in big ideas. It’s better to keep your ideas to yourself than to tell small-minded individuals because they’ll drain your energy and make you lose faith in your ideas.

We are social beings and we’ll always be tempted to share our ideas. However, we must be cautious about who we share our ideas with.

That being said, avoid sharing your ideas with small-minded people. Instead, share them with those who will reinforce your faith in your ideas because they’ll make you have the confidence of turning your idea into reality

The Hidden God

The hidden God

I use the word ‘he’ to refer to God because it’s the most common term used to refer to the Creator. Forgive me for that.

If there is a Creator-God, it has used methods of creation that are indistinguishable from nature; it has declined to make itself known for all of recorded history, it doesn’t intervene in affairs on earth, and has made itself impossible to observe.’ – David McFee

According to the theory of the Hidden God, God created the world and the laws that govern it and avoids involving himself in its daily operation. This theory claims that God got tired of involving himself with the physical world, and he let the laws he created to govern it. For this reason, he never involves himself in the affairs of man and the processes of nature.

Individuals who believe in this theory believe praying to God is useless because God never takes part in our affairs. However, they believe God created smaller gods that can answer our prayers because they participate in our affairs and the processes of nature.

Although God is unknowable, I believe this theory is worth analyzing because it makes sense. For instance, it explains why our prayers are seldom answered and why some ancient cultures never prayed directly to God. Many ancient cultures, especially Africans, prayed to ancestors and spirit guides because they believed these entities were more accessible and could take part in their affairs.

Moreover, this theory explains why God never helps righteous people during earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, and other natural disasters despite his ability to help them. As well, it explains why sometimes, righteous individuals are killed by predators, terrorists, and criminals despite living a prayerful and virtuous life.

If God was what Christians and Muslims teach us, these things would never happen to righteous people because, according to these religions, God loves the righteous, and he always protects them. Moreover, if God took part in our affairs as most religions claim, he could have answered most of our prayers.

Therefore, the theory of the hidden god is more reliable than religious theories because it enables people to embrace the world the way it is. On top of that, it enlightens us that we must work on creating the experiences we want instead of relying on God to work on our behalf.

In conclusion, although I agree that God is unknowable, I surely know that it’s impossible for the Creator to separate itself from Creation because Creation can’t survive without the Creator. For this reason, I can’t fully accept the hidden God theory. However, I love it because it enlightens people that it’s their responsibility- and not God’s – to create the life they want.

An Atheist is a Big Fool

An Atheist is a Big Fool

‘The wonders and balance of nature and the marvelous physics of flight present the truths of our Creator in ways simply too overwhelming to discount.’ – Robert Firth, Atheists Are Idiots

An atheist is a fool because he lacks judgment and prudence.

According to an atheist, the universe appeared from nothing. Despite the atheist’s self-proclaimed intelligence, he believes the fine-tuning necessary for life to exist occurred by chance.

The atheist is too foolish to realize that the sun is placed in a perfect position so that we survive, and he overlooks the many natural ecosystems, in which everything miraculously interacts together as a unit.

Moreover, he believes the design that enables different animals and plants to survive occurred by chance. To him, the gills that enable fish to breathe in water, the wings that enable birds to fly, and the roots that enable plants to absorb water were accidentally designed by blind forces. As well, to the atheist, our body organs – that perform particular functions that enable us to survive – appeared from nowhere.

I’ll never waste my time arguing with an atheist because everything in the physical world clearly indicates the existence of an intelligent designer. The seasons, weather patterns, and every living thing indicate the existence of a designer.

‘We humans, as Albert Einstein writes, are in the position of a little child entering a huge library, whose walls are covered to the ceiling with books in many different languages. The child knows that someone must have written those books….It notes a definite plan in the arrangement of the books, a mysterious order.

Sensible people – like the child – know that an intelligent force is behind any form of orderliness. However, despite seeing a mysterious order and arrangement on our planet, the atheist insists that this world appeared by chance.

For this reason, never waste time trying to enlighten an atheist because his foolishness is beyond measure. I refer to it as ‘Infinite Foolishness.’ The atheist is too foolish to realize that everything has a design and design can’t exist without a designer.

If you are an atheist reading this post, do me one favor. Go to a mental hospital and receive treatment as soon as possible because your foolishness is turning into madness. Maybe you have an untreated mental condition because any sensible individual that carefully analyzes the celestial bodies and life will definitely come to the conclusion that something brought the universe into existence.
