They Have All The Facts...

Some people in this world are extremely academically or socially curious. Some are even gifted in their fields of interest, and yet they still don't do too well in accepting humans as they are.

I once made the acquaintance of a black gender studies professor who hated "all women of wealthy means". I've also met an Asian General Practitioner who supposed that black men were hypersexual. I've known a teenager who hated her peers for no reason apart from the fact they were also teens.

What the frack ?

When I was a teen, I was similar, unfortunately. What changed my mind was the kindness of strangers I met throughout my life. Sometimes, the world just proves a hater wrong and they HAVE to change that mindset.

The thing I have always loved most about the example of the wisest teachers, such as Jesus, Ghandi, Lao Tse, etc, is their tolerance and acceptance of people. To harbor such harsh feelings is not very enlightened, and reveals such intolerance, that you have to wonder about where they are in their journey towards fulfillment and enlightenment.

I agree with that. Especially when it comes to prophets: the prophets might be right, the people who interpret their words and write it in a book are absolutely wrong.
Don't leave awesome knowledge in the hands of the people who can't handle it.
