Science, religion and the cognitive distortion of the believing mind

December 12, 2011

The human capacity for self-delusion is very well understood by post-modern psychology and when an entire group believes the same delusion, it does not make it any more true. When this delusion serves to prohibit the scientific advancement of a better, healthier and more tolerant society then it becomes counter-productive to the evolution of our species. The fact is that god only exists in the minds of those who need him to, and mass delusion exists because the same needs are shared by a multitude of people. Because of this, the existence of god is justified and explained even up to the university level where believers have the audacity to use the otherwise secular field of the sciences as fodder for their apologetics.
