Educated Brain

1

We should not have to abandon our consciousness, the utilization of our educated brain. It was placed in our body for a purpose. New ideas and new thoughts should not contradict previous educated ideas unless those previous ideas are wrong. New ideas should only expand upon or reinforce previous thinking. We properly use rationalism where empiricism does not fit and faith where rationalism does not explain, when those methods are not adequate. But when faith. empiricism and/or rationalism  conflict, one is wrong. Some try to substitute experience for reason, the senses for the sound mind, feelings for fact. They think that a paradigm  does not include all three. Any new paradigm must have all three in it and not in conflict.

    Does Chiro >> 33 principles conflict with rationalism(a priori) >> deduction – correct me i’m in error of basic definition, and empiricism (a posteriori – scientific method – inductive ?? not share a common paradigm?

    and you state that
    “New ideas and new thoughts should not contradict previous educated ideas unless those previous ideas are wrong.”

    Isn’t it possible that the new ideas are wrong and previous are right?
