Thorner: Has Thinking Become A Lost Art?



Rodin's "The Thinker" – Brittanica image

By Nancy Thorner - 

An article I recently ran across stirred my thoughts – and, in my opinion – deserved special attention. I decided it would be best to simply excerpt and adapt the  from a full report posted by Dave Daubenmire on June 2, 2022 titled, American's Can No Longer Think for Themselves.

As can be readily observed in today's society, Americans are rapidly losing their ability to reason and to think logically.  They simply regurgitate bilge that they heard someone else spit out.  Thinking for oneself is, therefore, becoming a lost art.
Following are some statements out of many expressed by Mr. Daubenmire where reason and logical thinking are definitely called for:

  1. America hasn’t been the same since women were encouraged to act like men and men were encouraged to act like women.
  2. If an unborn human baby isn’t alive, why do they have to kill it?
  3. Perhaps gun control could start with not arming the Islamic terror group the Taliban with American weapons.
  4. Over 2200 future school age children died from abortion today. Multiple assassins – why do the Leftists approve mass killing of children in abortion; but not in schools? How about tax-funded ADOPTION? SAVE LIVES and make childless couples happy!
  5. Why do they think eliminating guns will end gun violence? Killers gonna kill like they do in cities where guns are already banned – CHICAGO, BALTIMORE …
  6. When President Kennedy was murdered why wasn't the rifle blamed?
  7. How do you explain free money to Ukraine … free baby formula to the border … free crack pipes to Americans? Government has become organized crime!
  8. $40 BILLION to Ukraine … but we couldn’t afford $10 billion for a wall on USA's Southern border.
  9. Why are private groups investigating election fraud and the government is not? 
Dave Daubenmire is a veteran 35-year high school football coach who was spurred to action when attacked and sued by the ACLU in the late 1990s for praying with his high school football team. After a two-year battle for his 1st amendment rights, the ACLU relented and offered coach an out of court settlement. By taking the fight to the enemy, Coach Daubenmire has become a recognizable voice in the media as he is an unashamed, articulate, apologist for the Christian worldview.
