Effective Promoters of Beliefs
    #4279057 - 06/10/05 10:23 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Skorp used the term "effective promoters of beliefs" to describe Ghandi and Mother Teresa in a recent post. I got to thinking, this term applies to well known prophets, successful religion, Castaneda books, etc. etc. It's all about marketing and promotion.

Are we sold what to believe?

What we believe naturally is evidenced in our manner of behavior, the way we think and the way we act. Our beliefs are thereby presented to our environment as a natural result of the fact that we hold the beliefs in the first place.

"I don't get it"

I didn't either. It seemed to have nothing to do with my post.

I think the point was that the way we act and hold ourselves in this world amongst others is the promotion of the beliefs that we hold. Or something. :grin:

What I was trying to get to in the original post is just how much do we choose our beliefs versus how much we bought into beliefs sold by clever promoters.

I don't believe "choice" exists at all, its all just one chemical reaction flowing along, the previous moment defining the moment following it. :grin:

It's all good! :wink:

Sorry, I'm widely incoherent today, I'll go back to the guitar now. :lol: Where upon I am just as incoherent. :smirk:

Enjoy, incoherency isn't the worst thing in the world.  :stoned:
