The mind boggling prompt for the day from the Daily Post part of WordPress is: “Doubters Alert“.
Somehow I doubt that everyone will believe this to be true! Think there will always be a plethora of doubters out in the universe somewhere. Remember when the first people commented on the world not being flat? (Wasn’t alive back then personally, but still don’t doubt this fact is true!) Or Einstein’s theory of relativity? How many experiments have to be completed to repeatedly confirm this universal truism?
There will always be someone who claims “That’s not how it was done when I was younger!”. Will we continue to let the doubters control how our world sees the galaxy? Will you let someone try to shoot an apple on your head just to prove a well known and accepted physics fact? (Better make sure the person is an excellent archer before volunteering for the experiment.)
If the world isn’t round, how do the seasons actually succeed in changing on a fairly predictable schedule? Why don’t we fall off the world when looking over a mountain cliff? Personally, I fall a LOT. Have never managed to fall off the world, just tables and beds!
Why do doubters need to be alerted? Aren’t they normally living in constant fear anyway? Is this supposed to be something like the feared Amber Alert for missing children? Makes you wonder how many actual doubters there are in living existence in this galaxy! Is there a set standard for the limit of doubters in a country? Does a high doubter number effect the terror alert status for the whole country? What color is your country currently rated at? Is it a yellow day or the dreaded red alert day? Do the doubters even bother to check their nation’s status on a daily or weekly basis?
