THAT'S BULLSHIT!!!! (and so is this essay ;)
Ask yourself. When was the last time you heard an extremely bullshit comment about something? Or you made a bullshit excuse to get out of something? Or you looked at the media and thought to yourself, "Wow. There's so much bullshit online/on the TV/on the radio/etc." The answer is probably recently. See, bullshit has always been around. And you may say to yourself, "Well, that's just nonsense. What about in the Garden of Eden?" Yeah, well do you remember Satan? His words were bullshit. "You will not certainly die"... um... right. Sure, Satan, suuuure. -_- So yes, bullshit has always been around. Look at a few years down the road from Creation and you'll see the Pharisees. Now, not everything they said was bullshit, but that doesn't mean they didn't have a lot of BS here and there. Modern day politicians bullshit constantly. Advertisements on TV tell you about dieting tactics that supposedly have IMMEDIATE RESULTS. Bullshit. And the problem is; there is no solution. We are sinners, which means we are liars. Always have been, always will be. There is no way to conquer bullshitdom, but there is a way to be wiser than it so that you don't fall prey to its lies. First, you must allow yourself to learn from your mistakes by falling prey to some lies. This will occur naturally. Second, look to the Bible, other people, or internally and decide what you believe is true about that world. Third, educate yourself on the facts of the world and don't be ignorant that other people CAN in fact have other opinions than your own. Fourth of all, when you face the bullshit, use those things to guard yourself from its control.
