Further Comments on Superstition
"Superstition" (mi xin) was a rather
ordinary term before certain people in China who play politics hyped it into a
term with deadly power. Actually, the "superstition" propagated by
those politicians is not superstition, but a political label, a political
slogan; it is a political term used specifically when attacking others. Once
something is slapped with this big label it becomes antithetical to science, and
can thus be brazenly attacked.
The fact is, those who have gone through all kinds of
political campaigns are very discerning. They used to believe in something, they
have experienced disappointment, they have blindly admired something or someone,
and from their experiences they have learned their lesson. During the Cultural
Revolution, notably, they experienced an unforgettable blow to their souls.
Could you possibly get people like this to just rashly believe in anything?
People today are more capable than ever of discerning whether something is the
truth or some so-called "superstition," as cooked up by people who
Whether something is science or superstition isn’t to be
decided by politicians. Instead, it should be appraised by scientists. Yet those
so-called "scientists" who are used for political purposes are
actually political figures, too. It’s impossible for such people to draw fair
and scientific conclusions from a truly scientific and neutral standpoint. So,
fundamentally, they cannot be considered scientists. At most they can merely act
as a club that’s held in the hands of politicians and used to strike at
The understanding of the Truth of the cosmos by students of
Dafa cultivation is an elevation that results from rational understanding and
experience. It’s futile for human beings to refute—regardless of what their
stance is—the Fa-principles of the cosmos, which transcend all theories in the
human society. At a time when the morality of human society is on the verge of
total collapse, in particular, it is the great cosmos that has once again shown
mercy to human beings and given them this final chance. This is mankind’s
hope, which it should treasure and cherish immensely. Out of selfish wants,
however, humans are undermining this last hope the cosmos has given mankind,
infuriating Heaven and Earth. Ignorant people even call the many disasters
"natural phenomena." The cosmos does not exist for mankind. Humans are
merely a manifestation of the existence of the lowest-level beings. If humankind
no longer meets the standard of existence at this
level of the universe, then it can only be weeded out by the cosmos’s history.
Mankind! Awaken! The vows of Gods in history are being
fulfilled. The Dafa is judging all beings. What path a person takes in life is
his own choosing. One thought a person has might determine his future.
Treasure and cherish it: the cosmos’s Fa-principles are
right in front of you.
