Belief is so strong we believe something we KNOW isnt true ?

How cool is that?

(project im not telling you about)

Update:

(much) 

Update 2:

You can KNOW factually that God isnt real or that 72 virgins are not real but your brain can still believe it none the less, how fcuked up is that? 

Update 3:

Our evolved belief system is very powerful 

Update 4:

For good evolutionary reasons 

Update 5:

You can CHOOSE to believe simply because it feels better and thats what alot of theists do 

Update 6:

Isnt this fascinating? 

Update 7:

well not a project 

Update 8:

lol tolle and Dawkins just tow the arbitrary line 

Update 9:

just stereo types 

Update 10:

They are not truly free thinkers 

Update 11:

Dawkings is closer but he has to do what other scientist have to do and he just becomes another unoriginal thinker 

Update 12:

This isnt cognitive this is, here why,  thats where it ends, you dont get much from that 

Update 13:

's

Update 14:

and others have said the same thing many times over  

Update 15:

Its almost not real science, real science should be about being totally open, being experimental,  investigating, and being unbiased

Update 16:

Its almost like they are a little more closed than they should be as scientists 

Update 17:

Narrow 

Update 18:

There was nothing useful found in all that commotion he caused it was just entertaining and right, but it was a shallow victory and he didnt really experiment or investigate the religious side properly or experimentally 

Update 19:

or in an experiential  way

    Speak for yourself, silly.  Millions experience God for themselves every year.  You should, too.  It's the logical thing to do.  Don't bother moving the goalposts.  It's more evidence than you have to shore up your fantasy that there is no God.

    You mean like today's Christians who continue to believe (((DEBUNKED))) roman catholic doctrine although they are "preaching another gospel and are ACCURSED" (Galatians 1:6-9)?

    That's POSSIBLE

    but I think most people only experience that condition VERY TEMPORARILY

    and then their minds adjust to the new evidence that they have observed

    and "they change their mind".
