Hmmm... Would complete lack of criticism be possible? For example what happens if you encounter contradictory beliefs. You can't adopt both of them. As a trivial example, the belief that all vegetable oils are healthy versus the belief that only some are. The latter belief would prevent you from fully adopting the former.
