“The deepest sin against the human mind is to believe things without evidence.”
Before we came out of the womb, we were already seeing, hearing and touching. We were therefore taking in sensory data into our brains and forming thoughts based on those sensations. When we first used a cheap caribbean all inclusive 2013 to see the picturesque ivory beaches, the tranquil blue water, the tall majestic palm trees, the sculptured and manicured landscaping, the sumptuous cooking and the lavish luxury resorts, we had all the evidence we needed to know that this place was awesome.

But when it comes to religion, things can be hazy and uncertain. People believe without evidence, which is contrary to the normal everyday experience.
In this presentation, atheist Aldous Huxley gave solid historical evidence and predictions on why the New World Order will be achieved by the current ruling Oligarchy.
But when famed atheist Aldous Huxley said that The deepest sin against the human mind is to believe things without evidence and made this pronouncement, he begged one big question.
He was attacking religious people’s inclination to believe in God without evidence. He felt that their beliefs were unjustified because they simply believed without having any idea whether the belief was true. And of course, he believed that there was no God so that the belief in Him was false.
What is the evidence for his statement, “The deepest sin against the human mind is to believe things without evidence.” With what proof did he come forth to show that his statement is true?
Was it something he developed in a lab? What experiments did he perform to arrive at that conclusion? Because if he has no data, no proof, no evidence, no tests and no research, then he has committed the deepest sin against the human mind. His statement has become a belief, without facts, evidence and proof.
Famous atheist Aldous Huxley confines his predictions and fears for the brave new world that he sees for the future.
And herein lies the weakness of the atheist position in their attempts to separate themselves from religious people. They have sawed the limb off on which they sit and they made the cut between themselves and the tree trunk.
In their haste to define what knowledge is versus beliefs, they do not realize that the very statement asserting that distinction falls short of its own definition.
But it gets worse for Huxley.
How did he know that his eyes were operating correctly? How did he know that his eyes were not distorting the objects he saw? Did he verify that the image he remembers is the same as the object in front of his eyes a few seconds before?
Or did he use his eyes to make sure that his eyesight was operating properly? That would be circular reasoning, to believe that his eyes were working properly without evidence. And that is yet another deepest sin against the human mind.
