Beliefs are from indoctrination only!

We are all born without any knowledge! Zippo, Zilch, Zero.
All we know is what our involuntary senses tell us to do, like breathe and digest food and expel the food after the food is used for energy! Even at this time in our lives we do not know how to use the bathroom properly, nor do we know of a need for personal hygiene, nor can we speak a language, nor walk.

So what is next? We learn things! How do we learn things? We learn things by repetition and mimicking what we hear from other humans. We trust that the people teaching us has already weighed the evidence throughly and have already filtered it through as being absolute truth.

How do we learn to eat properly, learn to walk, learn to use the bathroom, learn to read, write, and spell, how do we learn to speak our native language?

We learn by repeating what we hear and by mimicking others, this is to say had we been born in Mexico, we would be mimicking the Spanish language, should we have been born in Russia, we would be mimicking the Russian language, should we have been born in Iraq, we would be mimicking the Arab language.

The same holds true for beliefs and religions. Had you been born in Iraq, then you would be bowing to Allah 5 times a day and think that anyone that does not do as you do, then they would be destined for Allah's Hell.

The same holds true for being born in the USA. Had your family been Christian, then you would believe the Christian faith, or had your family been Catholic, then you would be Catholic, or had your family been Mormon, then you would also be Mormon, and believe that anyone that does not hold to your belief, then they would be destined to a Hell according to your beliefs.

Had you been born in Borneo, and cannibalism was the norm, then you would be eating human meat.

Beliefs are only indoctrination and mimicking as to fit in society and not look like and be cast aside as an outsider, because everyone else is mimicking all the other higher-level monkeys in the group.

You have a belief because you've been told that their belief is the only true belief, therefore it must be true and if you do not believe as you've been told,
then you've been told that you will be sent to Hell.

You are the sum total of your geographical area and indoctrinated religious beliefs of that area.

And it's only when you begin to question that indoctrination that you begin the path to wisdom.

I agree with the deacon. Wisdom comes from asking questions. Not enough people ask questions. They seek answers, sure, but many times only the ones they want. A true questioner does not reach a conclusion first.
