Jesus: “discard your idealism for logic.” (Quoting Isaiah)

Jesus from the Deesis Mosaic

“Beware that your worship may be vanity, foolishness, nonsense. You respect what is familiar and popular and discard what is actually correct.”

The idea that a centralized agency is a credible authority for determining “what is the best science” is odd. That is totally contrary to the very premise of science.

You could release your terrified religious faith in political idealism and instead focus on science (logic). However, you cannot do both.

This is the same old issue that Isaiah brought up and that Jesus brought up as well (quoting Isaiah in Mark 7:7-8, etc). Either you favor idealism or you favor logic. “I favor neither” is a pretense.

I do not approve of the translation in the image below, but if you read the common translations of the verses around Mark 7:7, plus the similar verses in other parts of the New Testament (and Old), you will see the same point that is made in many other religions as well.

“Beware that your worship may be vanity, foolishness, nonsense. You respect what is familiar and popular and discard what is actually correct.”
