TWO PROVISIONAL TRUTHS

[That’s how scientists speak of our current knowledge about reality]

 

FIRST PROVISIONAL TRUTH

 

THE BRAIN GENERATES BELIEFS AND REINFORCES THEM AS TRUTHS -Belief comes naturally, but analytical thinking has to be learned!

 

Reference:  Michael Shermer, The Believing Brain

                                                       (Times Books, 2011)

SECOND PROVISIONAL TRUTH

 

SOCIETY GENERATED MORALITY AND RELIGION REINFORCED IT AS TRUTH –Religion had a “Johnny-come-lately” role with respect to human morality!

 

Reference:  Frans De Waal, The Bonobo & the Atheist

                                                  (Norton, 2013).
