Why do we need beliefs?
Because we are all born into this world without orientation or specific direction, we want so badly to (fit in) with others of our ilk to be, look and appear, and act normal because we presume those living before us, must certainly had previously weighed and sorted through all of the nonsense and challenges of life and it was met with their approval and also to reaffirm to each one of us in our mind, and society as a whole, that each of us are not insane and that we are normal and mentally stable, based upon what society as a whole, deems as being sane and mentally stable.
Although for the most part humans, after indoctrination of beliefs and myths, passed down from generation to generation, are innately insanely wrong.
Why do we need to be assured, that we are in fact, OK?
Because we would prefer to think that grandpa or grandma, or that our previous generation were morally sane and or mentally wholesome and mentally stable and were not insane, or mother or father were mentally wholesome and not insane, therefore we like to think that we ourselves, by this presumption, that certainly we too, must not be insane also.
Who told us beliefs were true?
The very same people whom taught us how to walk and talk and how to use the bathroom by ourselves. The very same people whom we trusted and assured us that by having a belief in ghosts and invisible beings, are indeed sane and mentally wholesome.
The very same people that we trusted to lead us to truth into this world, also indoctrinated us by surety and blind presumption on their part, that their presorted and mentally weighed beliefs must surely be real and true.
The very same people that we trusted at a very young age, and indoctrinated us with their unchallenged lies and silly childhood and dumbed-down beliefs that they, (they, being the very same people whom were indoctrinated by the very same people whom indoctrinated them), when they were so very young and easily impressionable.
The key to silly childhood beliefs about God's, saviors, demons and invisible beings, is passed on through generation to generation by indoctrination of insane ideas and myths and silly superstitious beliefs, that we are willing to presume by blind presumption, are therefore true.
To take a stand and challenge those beliefs would make them appear to be wrong and not sane by their perception and their immediate reaction is to get defensive and upset.
Beliefs are essentially a position of passed down emotional instability, resulting in producing an unhealthy mind and thereby producing a mentally unhealthy collective of people.
Beliefs without evidence or confirmation should be abandoned, no society or anyone should be granted the right to pass down presumed beliefs, myths and fairy tales.
Why do we presume fairy tales, myths, and beliefs to be true?
Because from fear and ignorance on our part, we tend to think by blind presumption that the people who lived before us, must certainly have had more and much better substantiated previous knowledge than we that are living today have. This presumption is a big mistake.
If we do not know for sure what is true, then we should not presume things and ideas to be true.
When we presume ideas and beliefs to be true, we then live in mental fantasy.
A letter from the president
What if....I'm wrong? What if....I made a mistake? What if....There were no weapons of mass destruction? What if....I sent people off to be killed, because I was wrong? What if....I bankrupt America? What if....Israel is not God's chosen people? What if....There is no God? What if....I create world war three? What if....I've been lied to? What if....I've been deceived? What if....I'm mentally insane?
