Reality Versus Truth

The words “reality” and “truth” mean the same thing; however, the word “reality” suggests a physical object while truth is conceived of as a statement.  Also, one’s concept (idea) of truth is commonly hypostatized; that is, virtually everyone unconsciously mistakes their concept of truth to, in effect, be a part of the definition of “truth.”  In other words, virtually everyone (incorrectly) believes that a truth is a type of statement.

Fact Super Checkers

We check the fact checkers; we are fact super checkers. Once we do our research, analysis, and evaluation, we present screenshots, photographs, and videos from their websites. We, then, provide you with two things: (1) our conclusions and (2) a space for you to provide your own conclusions. So far, your conclusions have agreed with our conclusions 183 out of 183 times.

We use SMQTs (Studies Matrix Questions Tests) and IQSs (Idea Quick Scorecards).

Age of Liars

We live in the age of liars.  Liars are everywhere, from government officials to stock brokers to medical doctors to members of every other profession and group imaginable.  Now, however, we have a foolproof way of knowing who the liars are – the Lincoln System.

Principle 6: Priority

Morality has priority over reality.

For example, you are in a forest, walking on a path.  You come upon a fork (split) in the path.  Suddenly, a man runs past you and onto the left branch of the fork.  A minute later, a dozen, known Muslim terrorists run up to you and ask, “Which way did the man go?”  The reality (true) answer is that he ran left.  The morality (protecting) answer is that he ran right.  Unless you are a moral pervert, you say to the terrorists, “He ran right.”

Principle 7: Twisted Minds

Some people are brought up in cultures that twist (warp) their minds when they are children; for example, the majority (based on a scientific survey of one million Muslims in every country on earth –  “The Kline Survey” – we will be publishing the Kline Survey and other studies on our website) of Muslims.  This is most evidenced in the original concept of jihad.

Principle 10: Overlap

The Bible, psychology, psychiatry, secular science, philosophy, and other intellectual disciplines overlap (agree) on all of the Lincoln Principles, the principles which make up the Lincoln System, which we are teaching on this website.  We will be providing over one million citations to prove this indisputable fact.

Principle 12: Studies

Sometimes, there are multiple studies on a subject that contradict each other.  How do you know which study is correct?

You use the “Studies Matrix,” which asks a fixed set of questions.  We will be delving into the Studies Matrix in a future post.

When we quote contradictory studies, we will tell you which studies pass the Studies Matrix Questions Test.

Principle 13: Studies Matrix

Here are the questions that make up the Studies Matrix:

  1. How old is the study?
  2. Who is the author of the study?
  3. How many samples were taken?
  4. What is the past record of the author of the study?
  5. How often did the author of the study show bias, if at all?
  6. Is the author moral or amoral?
  7. If the author is moral, are they conservative, moderate, or liberal?
  8. How does the public view the author?
  9. How long has the author been doing studies?
  10. What is the level of education of the author?
  11. How many years of life experience does the author have?
  12. Does the author publish their study and quit or do they periodically review their study to see if they made any mistakes?
  13. How long did the author spend on the study?
  14. Is the author a single individual or a group of persons?
  15. Did the author receive funding from biased supporters for their study?

There are over a thousand more questions that must be asked.  We will be posting these additional questions over time.

Principle 30: Inescapability

Inescapability is the characteristic of the human mind of being unable to not believe and/or not know something and/or of not simply having the impact of believing and/or knowing something.  In other words, you are always, actually or in effect, locked in to some idea.  Even when you experience a blank mind, you are locked in to something – the impact of the knowledge that you have a blank mind.  Note that, if there were moments of “no lockage,” there would still be “eventual inescapability.”

Principle 36: Seniority

People who have spent more years in a field of study or at a job are usually better equipped than younger people in the same field of study or job to determine what is real and what is true in that field of study or job.  This stems from their usually greater experience in the field of study or job and usually greater number of insights in the field of study or job.  (Insight is different from data and information [connected data].)

Principle 44: Coginostization

coginostization: healthy learning of (permitting of a micro [tiny] degree of control of one’s mind by) an idea

“Coginostization” is a neologism (new word) coined by Dr. Michael J. Bisconti.

Examples of Types of Coginostization:

Knowing

Knowing is the coginostization of a piece of knowledge.

Believing

Believing is the coginostization of a belief.

Principle 49: Behavioral Scientists

Behavioral scientists, which include psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, and psychoanalysts, among others, are not really scientists.  This is because they build on probabilities, not certainties.  In other words, they make judgments based on what occurs most of the time, not on what occurs all of the time.  Therefore, you cannot take their conclusions as gospel (infallible truth).
