"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Know Truth | A Child's Way To Grow, No Doubt About It

Truth holds up under scrutiny. Lie does not.

Process of Elimination – Investigation Of Lies

Truth can be known by simply exposing enough lies. Whatever discourages investigation and questions tends to be a lie. So I must ask questions and check out the replies until deeply satisfied.

Process of Confirmation – Investigation Of Truth

Truth welcomes and invites investigation and questions. Truth will not rest within me until I do enough investigation, research and questioning to verify it. Truth does not want me to accept it and have no reasonable basis why.

This is evident in the truth-seeking nature in children. This is a main reason they relentlessly ask “Why.” Children want to confirm the truth of their understanding down to the most fundamental level.

This is the way to grow. This is how to know truth. Become a child again in this sense.

If I have stopped asking for confirmation in this manner, I must already know all the truth there is to know.

If I seek truth a child's way, I will find truth – new truth and more of the same truth. Until I do, truth will keep confronting me by asking, “Are you sure I'm truth? How do you know? Tell me more than one way you know.”

Truth will supply several ways to support knowledge of it. Truth wants me to have no doubt about it.

A child's way to know truth is more fundamental than bibles and more fundamental than Africa.

What A Child Believes
