ROOT: What you perceive is what you get

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — George Carlin found it easier to question everything and believe in nothing. His perception of life is that it was one big lie. Maybe he was right, but I still think that some of what he said was way off the mark.

That is why it is dumb to argue about opinions. If you believe in ghosts, then more power to you. I am not going to argue with you. Your perception is different than mine. It doesn’t make you or I wrong, it just makes us different. Maybe if we all gave each other the same kind of leeway, then things wouldn’t be so screwed up on this planet of ours.
