Did you know that back in the day – curiosity was a vice. People used to think that curiosity was not a good thing. Curiosity can lead you down some bad and dark places. There are some things that you just don’t need to know. There are some things that you just shouldn’t know.
We are just a curious people. Some of you might have found this post because you were curious about whether someone had ever written about how curiosity is a vice or how Google makes you sin.
I don’t mean to blame Google. Google’s really not at fault here. I think I should have called the post – How the Internet Makes You Sin, but that just isn’t as catchy a title and no one would really be interested in that. I think people kinda know that already.
I am so guilty of this and was pretty convicted about the thought that curiosity was a vice. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not saying that Googling something is sin. Please Google away. The main idea is that just because you can know many things – that doesn’t necessarily mean that it would be good for you to know them.
In an information age where you can know everything – this is almost impossible to stay away from.
It takes discipline to not want to know everything. I definitely need to let go of wanting to know everything. I know that back in the day – they used to think that curiosity was a vice. Truth is – today – it still is.
