    such topics as:

    Ancient KmT: Cradle of Civilization
    Black Women Warriors
    Bible Fraud: Is the Bible Real?
    Chemtrails; Is the gub'ment manipulating the environment
    Diet: You are what you eat
    H.A.A.R.P.
    Historical Origin(s)
    Medical Issues: w/eating Pork
    Prophecy: Feminine Spirituality
    Tithes: Get Your Hands Outta My Pocket
    ...with any degree of basic:

    sound reasoning
    common sense
    or presence of mind?

    A. Why? Because the bible does not mention anything about these topics; therefore, their "reality" must not be factual.

    However Ancient Kmt is not the cradle of civilization as much as it is an elder daughter that was born from the cradle.

    Sister Fine1952 ... Peace and Blessings,

    the little i know of cognitive dissonance ... the one that has it ... must be the one that says they have it

    for one to say another is cognitively dissonant ... would require entry into their mind ... which isn't possible

    from what i understand ... you can only say whether you are cognitively dissonant about something

    not that someone else is ... though i may be wrong Sister ... correct me if i am

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Destee

    Like I said -- Ancient KmT is the Cradle of Civilization b/c of all the Ancient Cultures this Ancient Black African Culture is the "best" self-documented all up and down the Nile (eg. blue and white) >>>meaning they WROTE DOWN EVERYTHING that they saw, heard, smelt and spiritutual-ly visualized far better than Nubia or Cush (eg. Ethiopia) for that matter.

    The only fact I have yet 2 uncover is "when" they CREATED YT PEOPLE and why they didn't get rid of them "utterly" when they began to stir up havoc (eg. had us killing each other) in their private homes b/c you know they were our slavs (eg. correct spelling) at that particualr point and time --didn't you?

    Truth be told >>>if you wanna know about the origin of the world start with Ethiopia (eg. the Mother) >>>yet if you wanna know the origins of how a great civilization is built, study KmT. Did you know that she is the only civilization --in the world-- that practiced a theocracy?

    Sister Destee: There are two sides to this non-cognitive coin

    1. lack of a response
    2. give a response

    both are viable to this mental condition. So you see, Sister Destee, it is not about entry or none entry into anyone's mind yet rather it's about the reaction or non reaction to "new" challenging information that surfaces to interrupt-disturb and conflict with "old" information by avoiding, rejecting and explaining away, that "new" challenging information thus convincing self that there is no conflict present (eg. denial).

    Thx for responding:wave:

    Hey Sister ... thank you for responding! ... :love:

    I don't believe it is easy to determine what processes others go through, even though many attempt doing so.

    No matter the response or lack thereof, at best, we're on the outside looking into someone else's life.

    The power lies in speaking to our own process, our own experience ... as our opinion of others is a guess.

    A good guess maybe ... but a guess nonetheless ... :)

    Love You! :kiss:

    :heart:

    Why Do Christians Have Cognitive Dissonance

    Answer: Their myth believing cannot be reconciled with their logical mind and they can be "helped", the ones that are not torn may be totally lost to nonsense.

    ..in any event, the 'blinding fact' is that cognitive dissonance remains a top ranked characteristic of Christians who refuse to 'think outside the box' when presented with new challenging facts that refute that biblical nonsense; while indeed remaining securely locked into the "lying lore of Christianity".
