But interesting question, and I can't say I understand it totally -- why do some people develop critical thinking skills with religions (or in other areas) while others do not. I'm tending to think it comes down to 'need'....when you really need something it's difficult not to slant the logic your way - similar to confirmation bias. I'm imagining that, with our jaunts into Christianity, we didn't need that religious community as much as others who were easily able to swallow illogical beliefs hook, line and sinker. It's much more difficult for those who were raised in a particular cult where they in some cases lose their entire family when they leave the cult. And like you say, upbringing does influence how much and in what way we need others, either via direct instruction or via deficiencies in nurturing. If you look at Christianity the way it's supposed to be followed it's not a bad thing at all..Now if you look and the goofballs trying to scare the hell into everyone and fear mongering with old laws claiming they are speaking in the name of Christianity..I've always have a problem with those types.. Just like with anything..like with BLM, there is the peaceful people, then those goofballs that show up later tearing everything up making it look like the whole context of what they are doing, something totally different that what it is.. There are those that walk the path and then there are the extremists. Edited November 10, 2020 by Ceka Cianci 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
