I believe you are correct in your thinking to expose the dumb ideas on planet. Billions of people believe irrational ideas and assumptions to turn mortality's purpose into an eternal one by emotion. Dumb ideas.
How do we co-exist with these dumb ideas without going crazy ourselves? The world is a lunatic planet. How can our brains use 100% of its power when clogged with dumb ideas? The new wave is the flat earth theory. What a dumb idea. I do not want to discuss it because the idea is so stupid. Why are we going to waste time on such a stupid idea?
My point is, like Mormonism, billions of people are chugging along on 1% to 10% of the brain's mental power. The idea is classified as a myth, but is it? I don't know.https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/do-people-only-use-10-percent-of-their-brains/
A lot of dumb ideas exist on the planet. Does it clog our brains? Or is it our spirit that gets clogged? I have no answers, just good questions that have no answer.
Maybe we are all equal to Einstein, but he learned to reject all irrational thought from his brain. Maybe he removed the dumb Biblical ideas from his brain and ignored the Bible and could care less about God because eternity is something outside of mortality; therefore, he didn't waste his time thinking about it. As far as I know, he believed in God rationally, but stepped out of box regarding the Bible.
He said the following about the Bible, and I agree with him. This quote is from a man full of rational idea, removing the clogged ideas based on by tradition that you reference in your quote:
"the word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish." For me," he added, "the Jewish religion like all other religions is an incarnation of the most childish superstitions."http://www.nbcnews.com/id/24598856/ns/us_news-faith/t/einstein-letter-calls-bible-pretty-childish/#.W57PhPZFzIU
I don't agree with all of his views about God, but I agree with the view above. I would add "the interpretation by theologians of the word of God" to the beginning of the quote to absorb the astute ideas of Einstein.
How do we remove all these dumb ideas from the planet? Reason.
