TMI: Too Much Information

(You can receive this Blog via email by entering your address on the right.)

You and I have a vast and almost immeasurable wealth of knowledge and information at our fingertips. Global communication, real-time news, and the internet have opened doors that no generation before us could have imagined possible.

But is that abundance of knowledge truly beneficial? Is all of the available information a good thing?

Here are some quotes relating to knowledge and information:

"Knowledge is power."

"Information is liberating."

"Ignorance is bliss."

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."

"Knowledge is happiness."

"Power corrupts. Knowledge is power."

And now allow me to make a statement:

"While seeking to be informed, we've become desensitized to truth."

Do you think that our exposure to knowledge and information has robbed us of truth?
