Thread Name: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
It's a sign of tradition, Steve, and people's traditions (whether they are religious or otherwise) are generally chock full of delusions. You have delusions too, but quite different ones, I'm sure. Everyone has some delusions. Yes, we all have delusions about certain things, things we believe that simply aren't true...but the nature OF a delusion is this: You don't realize you have it! ;-) Other people may realize it. You don't.
And most people are too proud to even admit to the possibility that some of their cherished beliefs are delusions. They think it only happens to other people, not to them. THAT's another one of their delusions! ;-D
I readily admit that I probably have a few delusions...after all, I'm human. Yup, I have no problem admitting to the very likely possibility of having some delusions...after all, my culture has passed them on to me like it does to everyone else.
I bet you don't admit to such a possibility in your own case, Steve.
