The donkey told the tiger, "The grass is blue."

The tiger replied, "No, the grass is green ."

The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion.

As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming: ′′Your Highness, isn't it true that the grass is blue?"

The lion replied: "If you believe it is true, the grass is blue."

The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him."

The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence."

The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating ′′The grass is blue, the grass is blue..."

The tiger asked the lion, "Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?"

The lion replied, ′′You've known and seen the grass is green."

The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?"

The lion replied, "That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with an ass, and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!"

The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.

When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence moves on.

But believing in something makes real. It is the illusion of truth effect. Being promised by the lion that the tiger will be punished for telling that the grass is green, the donkey is now assured that it is the truth that the grass is blue, and there will be many others that will believe that the donkey is telling the truth. Isn't that how belief, like religion, spreads?

Why the cop punish such fool people not obey laws.?

Mali222 Level 4 Sep 18, 2021

गधे ने बाघ से कहा, "घास नीली है।"

बाघ ने उत्तर दिया, "नहीं, घास हरी है।"

चर्चा गर्म हो गई, और दोनों ने इस मुद्दे को मध्यस्थता के लिए प्रस्तुत करने का फैसला किया, इसलिए वे शेर के पास पहुंचे।

जैसे ही वे अपने सिंहासन पर बैठे शेर के पास पहुंचे, गधा चिल्लाने लगा: "महाराज, क्या यह सच नहीं है कि घास नीली है?"

शेर ने उत्तर दिया: "यदि आप मानते हैं कि यह सच है, तो घास नीली है।"

जैसे ही वे अपने सिंहासन पर बैठे शेर के पास पहुंचे, गधा चिल्लाने लगा: "महाराज, क्या यह सच नहीं है कि घास नीली है?"

शेर ने उत्तर दिया: "यदि आप मानते हैं कि यह सच है, तो घास नीली है।"

गधा आगे बढ़ा और आगे बढ़ा: "बाघ मुझसे असहमत है, मेरा विरोध करता है और मुझे परेशान करता है। कृपया उसे दंडित करें।"

राजा ने तब घोषणा की: "बाघ को 3 दिन के मौन के साथ दंडित किया जाएगा।"

गधा खुशी से उछल पड़ा और अपने रास्ते पर चला गया, संतुष्ट और दोहरा रहा था "घास नीली है, घास नीली है ..."

बाघ ने शेर से पूछा, "महाराज, तुमने मुझे सजा क्यों दी, आखिर घास हरी है?"

शेर ने उत्तर दिया, "तुमने जाना और देखा है कि घास हरी होती है।"

बाघ ने पूछा, "तो तुम मुझे दंड क्यों देते हो?"

शेर ने उत्तर दिया, "इसका इस सवाल से कोई लेना-देना नहीं है कि घास नीली है या हरी। सजा इसलिए है क्योंकि यह आप जैसे बहादुर, बुद्धिमान प्राणी के लिए एक गधे के साथ बहस करने में समय बर्बाद करने के लिए अपमानजनक है, और उसके ऊपर , आप आए और मुझे उस प्रश्न से परेशान किया, बस कुछ ऐसा सत्यापित करने के लिए जिसे आप पहले से जानते थे कि सच था!"

समय की सबसे बड़ी बर्बादी उस मूर्ख और कट्टर के साथ बहस करना है जो सच्चाई या वास्तविकता की परवाह नहीं करता है, लेकिन केवल अपने विश्वासों और भ्रमों की जीत है। उन चर्चाओं में समय बर्बाद न करें जिनका कोई मतलब नहीं है। ऐसे लोग हैं, जो उनके सामने पेश किए गए सभी सबूतों को समझने की क्षमता नहीं रखते हैं। अन्य जो अहंकार, घृणा और आक्रोश से अंधे हैं, और केवल एक चीज जो वे चाहते हैं वह सही है, भले ही वे न हों।

जब अज्ञान चिल्लाता है, तो बुद्धि आगे बढ़ती है।

@Weltansicht dog barks but elephant continue moving.

Hello Mali222. Is that a proverb from your homeland? Welcome to the community. 🙂

@Naomi you are absolutely right.

@Naomi love you

@Naomi Hey there Naomi, if you are at the ocean swimming be careful of the rip current 😉

Got it. Thanks, Weltansicht. 🙂

If I were the lion, I would ask the liberal mascot of a democrat donkey to explain to me the science of blue/green color blindness and have you been tested? LOL

color blindness is a reason to be disqualified from service unless you are in Russia because they figured out that colorblind people could see your camouflage much better.

@KeVince Yes. специальные подразделения требуют специальных людей

Yep applied to a select few on this site too! Lol

Very few should mind the case where the ass is happy in his ignorance. The problem comes when the ass seeks to force others to their viewpoint under threat of reprisal. That is something we don't need.

And I shouldn't have to point out that both political poles have been guilty of this behavior, but I'm doing so anyway just in case someone wants to hijack my point for their agenda.

This is excellent. I may remember a bit or two from childhood. It's timeless.

I'm not sure I agree with your little parable. You see, the color of grass is not in any way relevant to life and culture - sex is! immutable characteristics like skin color is! Life in the womb is!
When a fool comes and says boys can be girls and girls can be boys...there are incredibly burdensome problems with that idea - particularly where young children are burdened with that idea which in abjectly false. Teaching children to believe in and to embrace an obvious falsehood is cruel - it is abusive and it should be prohibited. If it isn't already it should be a prosecutable legal matter.
When someone comes along and says "a human embryo or zygote is NOT human life..." we know intuitively this to be abjectly false. Only those with a contorted sense of righteousness and morality would make such an argument. Only those who have an ultimate sense of selfishness and indifference to lives other than their very own would accept that idea as righteous and true.
To be the "tiger" - to stand up and argue against such nonsense does NOT make the tiger an "ass" - nor is it a waste of the "kings" time. I would agree that to argue of color of things like grass (color of skin is an entirely different thing) is indeed a waste of time. It is a meaningless argument.
Sex differences, life in the womb, color of skin - all are things that are immutable qualities that define us as individual human beings. For anyone to say that arguing in defense of them is a waste of time is an absurdity on the face of it.
It might seem silly or even absurd to say that one must defend the obvious truths of sex - men are men and women are women. It might seem silly and a waste to argue with a fool who wants license to snuff out human life in the womb. It might seem a waste of time to argue against the obviously stupid notion that the differences between people of various skin color are only superficial. It is incumbent upon sensible people to identify absurdity and stupidity in the face of it.
Apathy and indifference to Truth (upper case is intentional here) can only lead to collapse of civilization. It effectively puts the idiots in charge and there will no recovery from that.

Maybe "UThinking" a little too hard on this? It's Saturday---maybe switch to decaf for a little while?
Best, T

@Terence57 funny

Be vigilant at all times! Evil does not care what day of the week it is - it doesn't take off on weekends; it doesn't sleep at night. It never rests. "...do not go gentle into that good night..."
Thomas' poem tells people to "not go gentle" into death. Here, the word "gentle" means "docile," or passive and without resistance. in other words, Thomas tells readers they should not accept death passively, but instead should fight (or "rage" ) against it ("the dying of the light" ).

@iThink You'll never believe this, but I wrote a critical paper for "Do Not Go Gentle..." my freshman year of college!

I didn't really get the poignancy until my own parents got older---and then passed.

What I'm about is this; Don't let the bullshit run your life. There will always be bullshit, sometimes it's evil, sometimes it's clutter, sometimes it's just more-of-the-same.

You're allowed to vacay once in a while---say, on a Saturday morning...
The bullshit will always be waiting for you.

T

@Terence57 why would I not believe you - of course I believe you.
I'm 70 - many times through my life (even when I was quite young) I thought that my overactive analytical compulsion was a curse.
I've been told a few times that I think too much. Can't help it. But I'll try to take your advice. Thanks

I agree with the concept. It apparently does not work in practice. Our liberal friends, to include the media and elected officials are espousing things as fact which just ain't so. "There's about a hundred genders". "Socialism is good". "All white people are racist". We have ignored these people and they have convinced a lot of sheeple that these concepts, "grass is blue" are true, and that they should act to force the rest of us to agree with these concepts.

We have to argue with the idiots/asses to stop the spread.
