Mr. John Sabol made a grave error in his last editorial that you evidently found enough value in, since it cleared your censorship. He ended his gibberish with, “Any Questions?” and signed it, Oh! Boy!
I dedicate the following from the writings of Spinoza perhaps aiding him in exiting from the cubicle of a brain that makes his world so limited. It is obvious he has avoided the greatest book of all, the dictionary and gotten all his worldly knowledge from the very parochial single source, the Bible, which in comparison concentrates on begets and records of family trees. There are more subjects than religion in a well rounded education, but evidently he chooses to live in his own limited world.
Spinoza received a letter from his former pupil who had been converted to Catholicism as follows:
Your assume that you have found the true philosophy. How do you know that your philosophy is the best of all those which have ever been taught in the world, are now taught, or shall be taught hereafter? To say nothing of what may be devised in the future. Have you examined all those philosophies, both ancient and modern, which are taught here, in India and all the world over? And even supposing that you have duly examined them, how do you know you have chosen the best? How dare you set yourself up above all the patriarchs, prophets, apostles, martyrs, doctors and confessors of the church? Miserable man and worm upon the earth that you are, yes, ashes and food for worms, how can you confront the eternal wisdom with your unspeakable blasphemy? What foundation have you for this rash, insane, deplorable, accursed doctrine? What devilish pride puffs you use to pass judgement on mysteries which Catholics themselves declare to be incomprehensible? Etc., etc.
To which Spinoza replied:
You who assume that you at last found the best religion, or rather the best teachers, and fixed your credibility upon them, how do you know that they are the best among those who have taught religions, or now teach, shall hereafter teach them? Have you examined all those religions, ancient and modern, which are taught here, and in India, and all the world over? And even supposing that you have duly examined them, how do you know that you have chosen the best?
Try including all subjects involved in wisdom, besides religion, and maybe you won’t be so eager to such miserable articles you have been submitting with such pride, when they are nothing but rot.
