THERE is a school of thought that truth is based on believing something is so.
But the first tool in navigating through life is recognizing that we do not control reality. Reality exists whatever we believe.
Atheists claim that faith in the existence of God is pure illusion.
But that in itself is a faith claim.
But the real illusion is to imagine that the complex nature of our planet could be created by chance.
The illusion is that human nature is all determined by the environment or genetics, with no choice how a person acts or lives.
It’s a self-reinforcing delusion. that will continue to be believed in the face of contrary evidence.
