In A World Of Cud Chewers, Who Is Not To Be Considered As Cattle?

Please Do Consider This: Man, as Mankind's Humanity, prides himself upon his (self-significance assumed as thought[?] to be) possessed ability to Ponder, Discern, Calculate, Speculate, Question, Fetter-out, Conclude, & ultimately Think in full sobriety's cognizance awareness of our given Life as lived surroundings' circumstances upon this planet Man chooses to call Earth, thus, The Thinking Man Statue of historical lore.


Therefore, let us consider in reconsidering that old proverb, “Which came first? The chicken or the egg?” Applied to the reality that is Man as the Human Race: Which came first (or logically should have): Thinking? …Or … Blindly (i.e.: Blind Faith1: belief without true understanding, perception, or discrimination.) Believing? As per any logical deduction of sound reasoning's simple clarification's application of Common Horse Sense: Thinking came first, and Believing came later, but only after tested conclusions proven facts as to that which was good, right, and factually true as truths to be identified as: Truth.


So when did Man's greatest gift -- The Human Mind (Man's precious ability to think and reason for himself) -- arrive at a sputtering-fluttering (tragic end of intelligent mind's soaring ever so high in wondrous flight in the mind's eye skies of reasoning and imagination) upon the ground of mind's-grounded for lack of Thinking end? When did men's reason insidiously nefariously (never benign but always infectiously cancerous) serve to invent and give reality's credence to the olden days terminology, Topsy-Turvey, indicating an entire Society of a world of Humanity turned totally and illogically-insanely upside down of also turned inside out with that which can only be assessed and stated as that inane state of idiot's mentality of mind that does more than proverbially conquer Thinking Man's man in “putting the cart before the horse,” as a total incomprehensible reversal of Man's gift of attained ability to Think & Reason before he chooses to Believe. requirement of Believing to come first and foremost over that most original and Primal-Brainiac concept of Thinking before doing, Thinking before Believing and Thinking before accepting any given topic of discussion's situational, statement, proclamation, theory, or given idea as a commonly accepted and, thusly, substantiated Fact to not of ever of never to be questioned, for to question is Taboo -- that state of heart and mind of non-Believing fools?


We live in a Culture and Society, Worldwide, where we are admonished to not Think too much, to not Over-Think things, but simply believe the lying a*s (George Carlin's superb statement of truth:  "Religion is Bullshit!") hypnotically mesmerizing deceptions of Organized Religion, and everything will be fine in the Sweet Bye and Bye of those who have swallowed a fool's fodder and ceased existence as Thinking Human Beings, and have assuredly allowed themselves to become the witless Disciples of Ignorance as Intelligently-Stupid, Dumb-Downed, creatures stripped and deprived of their Humane Humanity, relegated to mentally mindless lives and meager existences as slovenly, cud-of lies-chewing, Sheeple-People Cattle -- who are Human no more … Think, before you, Believe!

Are we all just cattle chewing on ideals like cud...mindlessly happy when everything around us is falling apart....Cows never try to get out of the burning barn, they just stand there and fry.
Like the way you have expressed your ideas in this one using the metaphor of the cattle going to the slaughter as their contented life just suddenly ends.

You closing lines sums it up marvelously. Thinking about, researching and searching, looking deeply into, weighing things logically, comparing thoroughly are of utmost importance to find answers; otherwise we are like sheep and cows.
Excellent sir Marvin.
