We can get carried away believing in this and in that. I have met Witches, Christians, Muslims, all sorts of people, believing in all sorts of ideas. I do not think any of them see the need to ask themselves why they think as they do. Logic and reason is required in their lives but stops absolutely still so as not to interfere with their formed belief system. If only they could listen to the likes of Sam Harris before they form their conclusions. Many beliefs start from young and solidify anyway. When young, not many will go to the book store and by a Sam Harris book will they . :)

What is wrong with believing? Well, with the majority, they believe and do no harm to others. Religion is very much part war and oppression, but not the only reason. You could be a Muslim in Africa and a Muslim in Pakistan but the cultural difference will have different interpretations. One may see fit to kill as punishment, the other may not and so on...

For me, it's as simple as we are in 2014 and we are still stuck. So much good information can be accessed. Freedom of speech, yet we are stuck being harmlessly irrational. This includes me too. We cannot step out of that ego frame of mind and find a better way. We are always defending our perceived rationalities of which often fit into cultural norms but are not in line with logic and reason. We can't see it. It's 2014 and we just can't see it. That's the way it goes ladies and gents. That's me and you!! Not only with religious beliefs either :)

The new artwork in Trafalgar Square, the French national symbol keeping an eye on Nelson - good fun.
