Children, beliefs, superstitions, Truth

Observing children has helped me see clearer into human nature. When a child is nescient about something, it uses superstition to bridge its lack of understanding. It then ascribes truth to these superstitions which is the birth of firm beliefs. It never considers there could be an answer outside its cultivated superstitions until it grows up and sees the happening objectively. Then the child sheds its superstitions and adheres to reality as it is.

If you think about it, isn’t this how we humans generally are in our search for Truth today?

It is though the human being abhors the vacuum of not knowing as it develops. Like a child, it starts questioning and wants answers. Ergo anything that necessitates the vacuum of nescience as a prerequisite for belief, thus suppressing the rising tide of inner inquiries, will lose support and interest among the upcoming generation today. Man today needs answers to questions.
