Dont let anyone tell you what to believe

There’s an organization for every belief.

In case you’re skeptical of that claim, try doing a Google search for a group called “The Flat Earth Society.”

If you have a belief, there’s someone out there willing to back you up. Moreover, there’s also someone out there dedicating their whole existence to converting you to their side of the argument.

There are religionist who seek to save secularist from the darkness of spiritual ignorance and there are secularist who seek to save the religionist from the tyranny of institutionalized faith.

Such things are to be expected in a world of diversity.

What never ceases to amaze me, however, is the way in which we are so easily flustered and frustrated when one of us fails to convince another of our point of view. It’s as if we think that people don’t have the right to continue believing as they please once we’ve pointed out their errors.

Well, here’s one of my beliefs;

You have the right to be irrational. You have the right to be incorrect. An irrational belief freely chosen is better than a logical idea that’s been forced upon you.

I still think beliefs matter. I still think it’s wise to reach for rational beliefs. But that’s something you have to choose and I advise you to decide based on what resonates with you.

Don’t let anyone else decide for you. If you don’t believe what I’m saying, then toss it out and find what’s best for you.

Cheers,

T.K. Coleman
