Normally when we talk about belief, we mean religious beliefs. But even the criticizers of religions have some kind of belief system. They base all their decisions on the premise of logic. Thats why I used the word belief system to include all kind of beliefs. It got me thinking about whether the human mind needs some kind of belief system to effectively function.
I was hoping to invite thoughts from people who study minds on this. I view belief(s) as some kind of axis around which mind functions. Without this axis, we might seem like crazy people unable to function properly in society. So I think its not fair to criticize others belief systems even though it may seem total rubbish to you.
What are your thoughts on this?
