Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome - I have difficulty understanding how any reasonably thinking person can have the faith of Islamic Jihadist extremists who have a goal to maim and kill "unbelievers." I agree with Francis Bacon that the deeper and more absurd the faith, the deeper it appears to be engrained. Once a faith is embedded in one's solipsistic reality it is extremely difficult to change. No wonder so many horrific things are done as an auto-da-fe (act of faith). Harris stated that, “central to most…See More

Auto-da-fe

Auto-da-fe is an act of faith without reason and is based on childhood indoctrination. Religious beliefs appeal to our need to find meaning in life and to find meaning in death. Man-made religions appeal to our need to belong, to feel important, to manage our insecurities and fears, and to attempt to manage our loneliness. Out of the 100,000 reli- gions that have ever existed, many of them were mere cults and sects based on human fears, insecurities, and promises to fulfill their needs. Take…See More

My God

Posted on December 22, 2018 at 9:17am 5 Comments

My God - The majority of religions talk in terms of My God. My God is ownership of God. My God invariably becomes a collective Our God, truth, and dogma. Our God dogma makes us right and you wrong. Or, us being saved and you being damned. Harris proposed, "the central tenant of every religious tradition is that all others are mere repositories of error or, at least, dangerously incomplete. Intolerance is thus intrinsic to every creed." (2004) Dogma makes our religion having an exclusive…

Doctrine of Infallibility

Posted on December 15, 2018 at 8:52am 1 Comment

What do you think of the Doctrine of Infallibility? For me, this doctrine correlates with inerrancy. For religions, infallibility includes saying my/our religion can't err because I/we have the Truth. Infallibility is about being right absolutely and without exception. Infallibility proclaims the inerrancy of the Bible. In 1870, the Roman Catholic Church formally announced the doctrine of papal infallibility on matters of faith and doctrine. However, all religions have some doctrinal forms…

Fideism

Posted on December 1, 2018 at 9:12am 3 Comments

What do you think of the concept of Fideism? For me, fideists are those religious addicts who have beliefs not based on reason or logic. For me, fideism puts reasoning to sleep. It really amounts to an abdication of the working brain’s critical thinking skills of analysis and synthesis. Fideism is concrete reactive thinking and a mechanical interaction with life. Schopenhauer said, “faith and knowledge are related as the scales of a balance; when one goes up, the other goes down.” (19th…
