My notion of “Web of Beliefs” shows that our beliefs are organized to support our lives – yet they are not as substantial as we may think. For example:
- Two people can hold similar beliefs yet use them very differently
- Two people may hold very different beliefs but lead lives clearly having the same values
Thus, I often view our beliefs as mere clothing. All that said, this video illustrates some of this so much better than my words ! Ironically enough I found this on a Christian’s site — he was using it to open the eyes of his fellow Christians. You see, the religious world does have hope.
